Hamilton County Public Health Asking for Face Coverings

 Hamilton County Public Health (HCPH) would be pleased to receive homemade face masks made by those in the community who have these special skills.

“Of course, these masks would not be used as part of medically-required personal protection protocol,” says Dr. Steve Feagins, Medical Director at Hamilton County Public Health.  “However, there are limited supplies of personal protective equipment, including masks.  These masks should be laundered daily.

Community members can drop the masks into a collection box in the lobby of Hamilton County Public Health, 250 William Howard Taft, Cincinnati, 45219, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.  Park in the rear of the building, enter in the marked doors where you will find the drop box.

Help Local Seniors

Council on Aging is seeking community support to help care for our region’s seniors during this uncertain time.  The greatest need for our seniors at this time is food and you or your organization can help.

We are seeking corporate and individual donors to help us put meals in the hands of seniors who are afraid to leave their homes – and who are being advised NOT to go out unnecessarily at this time. Donations are tax-deductible. A $50 donation will provide a 14-day shelf-stable meal box to a senior in need.
