Slowing Spread of COVID-19 Will Reduce Healthcare Burden

Hamilton County, OH – Hamilton County Public Health (HCPH) today issued a county-wide advisory to include all of Hamilton County, including Springdale and Norwood, with the exception of the City of Cincinnati. The advisory urges citizens to take the necessary precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19.

“As we continue to see explosive growth in our case numbers, we are at serious risk of overwhelming our healthcare systems,” says Hamilton County Health Commissioner Greg Kesterman. “With holidays approaching, we need to act quickly and decisively to slow the spread.”

The advisory lists several actions to be taken by Hamilton County residents to help put the brakes on the growth in case numbers. These include: staying at home whenever possible; observing the Governor’s curfew order; mask wearing, social distancing, hand hygiene and staying home when ill; limiting gatherings; working remotely; and observing all quarantine and isolation measures for exposures.
