Tuscarawas County Health Department COVID-19

COVID 19 News Release 3-14-20

“The Tuscarawas County Health Department was made aware late yesterday afternoon of a confirmed case from another County that had direct contact with approximately 20 residents and three healthcare workers in one of Tuscarawas County’s long-term care facilities. TCHD followed recommended procedures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Ohio Department of Health and we are working closely with the long-term care facility to monitor the residents. The families of the residents have also been notified. We will not be releasing the name of the long-term care facility. Following the lead of Governor DeWine and Health Director Dr. Acton, we will be sure to share information in a transparent way when we have it. Because there is known widespread community transmission of COVID-19 in Ohio and reduced testing capabilities I ask all Ohio residents to take the current situation seriously and remain at home, if at all possible. Again, at this time, Tuscarawas County has only one confirmed case of COVID-19.” Katie Seward, MPH, CHES, CTTS, Tuscarawas County Health Commissioner
