The Ross County Health District is reporting that there are now nine confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ross County residents. The nine reported cases are for Ross County residents only. Not all confirmed cases were tested at Adena Health System and Adena may have additional confirmed cases that are not Ross County residents as they serve a multi-county region.
The Health District’s infectious disease staff continue following established contact tracing guidelines and will contact anyone these individuals have been in close contact with.
Under the new stay at home orders, the Health District is reminding community members that everyone should remain at home unless there is an essential need to leave. If it is not life sustaining, if you can do without it and if it can wait, then it is not essential. Please do your part. Stay home.
If you need assistance during this stay at home order, residents can call 2-1-1 or visit www.211oh.org to find local resources and services in Ross County.
