COV-19 Update for Summit County Executive’s Offices 3/5/2020


The risk of getting COVID-19 in the U.S. is currently low.

 

There are simple things you can do to help keep yourself and others healthy.

 

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • If you are able, stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not routinely recommend the use of face masks by the general public to prevent respiratory illness and is not recommending their use at this time for the prevention of COVID-19.

 

The U.S. State Department has issued Level 4 travel advisories, advising against travel to China and Iran due to coronavirus outbreaks.  Americans are being advised to reconsider travel to Italy and South Korea (Level 3 advisory).  Increased caution is advised in traveling to Japan (Level 2 advisory).

 

As of March 4, there are zero confirmed cases of COV-19 in Ohio.  There is 1 person under investigation.

 

Summit County Public Health is working with the Ohio Department of Health to identify possible cases of COVID-19 and to continue 24/7 monitoring, prevention, and control for all infectious diseases.

 

We are preparing!  As part of the community containment planning process, Summit County Public Health has been meeting with hospitals, schools, fire, police, EMS, Summit County Emergency Management Agency, many other county agencies and the Summit County Healthcare Coalition.
