Where Can I Go for Information about COVID-19?

The best sources are reliable government agencies, heath departments or hospitals.  Here's a quick list of resources.

  • Center for Disease Control: The CDC has information about the virus, symptoms, how to avoid the virus, and much information about what families and individuals can do during this pandemic.
  • Ohio Department of Health: The ODH has an excellent site with updated statistics and information to help Ohioans get through this pandemic.
  • Ohio Coronavirus Hotline: If you have questions regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19 please call 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634)

What to Do If You're Sick

  • Don't call 911 unless you are having a life-threatening emergency such as as trouble breathing, heart attacks, stroke, and other problems where your life is in immediate danger.
  • Call your doctor or medical professional who will advise you what to do. Most people with mild cases of COVID-19 will be told to isolate at home and ride out the symptoms.
  • Do not go out if you are sick, even if you are not sure they are COVID-19 symptoms.
  • While rare, there are breakthrough COVID cases among those vaccinated. And, vaccinated individuals can spread the Delta variant, even those they may share no symptoms.
