Geauga Public Health continues to monitor the COVID-19 (2019 Novel Coronavirus)


The Geauga Public Health (GPH) continues to monitor the COVID-19 (2019 Novel Coronavirus) under the guidance of Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This virus was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China in December 2019.

There are currently no confirmed cases in Geauga County.
There are currently no confirmed cases in Ohio.

Unless you have recently traveled from China or have been around someone ill with this new virus, your risk of getting sick is low. If you have traveled from China and are experiencing signs and symptoms contact your doctor BEFORE going to the office.

Risk to the general public remains low, and the CDC recommends you use the same precautions you would take to prevent cold or flu:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Cover coughs/sneezes with your arm or a tissue.
  • Avoid exposure to others who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are ill.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
