COVID-19 update center

The Putnam County Health Department is working in collaboration the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and community partners to closely monitor the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

Even though most of the COVID related mandates and orders have been rescinded, residents are still advised to follow precautions to avoid the spread of COVID-19, such as:
Stay home if you are ill.
Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap             and water are not available.
Avoid touching your mouth, nose, or eyes
Cover coughs/sneezes with your arm
Avoid exposure to others who are sick
Have facial coverings available if a business, public transportation, or other areas require them

Businesses, organizations, etc have the option to continue to require the use of face masks by visitors, patrons, employees, etc.  Please keep this in mind and follow the rules established by the business.  Thank you.
