Not Everyone Needs to be tested for COVID-19.
Here is some information that might help in making decisions about seeking care or testing:
  • Most people have mild illness and are able to recover at home.
  • There is no treatment specifically approved for this virus.
  • Testing results may be helpful to inform decision-making about who you come in contact with.
Healthcare Treatment Options
All Ohio County Healthcare facilities are open and treating patients either in person or by virtual video visits. Please call the office during normal business hours to schedule an appointment. Car side registration is available so that patients can wait in their vehicles and not in waiting rooms. We have created separate entrances for sick and well patients.

Face Masks

    To minimize community spread, the CDC recommends that everyone wear a face covering in public or professional spaces where social distancing is harder to maintain, including grocery stores, pharmacies, and work places. www.cdc.gov
      Because many individuals may have the virus without knowing it, face coverings help keep them from spreading it to others. Face masks cover the nose and mouth. Optimally, the covering would go over eyes, nose, and mouth.  Robert Knox, MD and Rowgena Cain, ARPN – OCH’s Ear, Nose, and Throat providers – have created a video guide
        of how to use basic office supplies to create a full face shield.
        OCH urges community members to help "STOP THE SPREAD" by wearing facial coverings in public. This also allows all medical-grade personal protective equipment to be reserved for healthcare professionals who are in direct patient contact areas.
