Pickaway County Health Makes Statement on COVID-19


PICKAWAY – Pickaway County Public Health continues to monitor the information that is available regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We take this situation and the health of the residents of Pickaway County very seriously.

Dr. Donald Fouts, Medical Director and Acting Health Commissioner for Pickaway County Public Health has stated, “We ask that residents of the county take the recommended precautions to prevent infection including washing hands frequently, the use of hand sanitizer greater than 60% alcohol, avoiding touching your face, avoiding others that are ill if possible, and staying home if you’re sick, cough etiquette, and social distancing.”

Because the recommendations and information has changed and will likely continue to change, we ask that trusted sources such as the Center for Disease Control and the Ohio Department of Health for information be used.
