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.

The original order from July, 2020 that mandated the wearing of masks or face coverings was rescinded in early April, 2021.  However, a new order was signed that includes a section requiring that face coverings continue to be worn as well information regarding social distancing and non congregating.

The new order can be found here.

An addendum to the order was issued on April 27, 2021.  This addendum updates quarantine requirements for vaccinated students and adults.  The addendum can be found here.
