Athens County Requesting Donation of Personal Protective Equipment for Medical Response

As COVID-19 spreads across the region, medical facilities and EMS have experienced an excessive use rate of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The increased usage rate along with a massive back order on replenishment, will soon put our medical staff and responders at risk. If you have any PPE, (N95 or other medical masks, exam gloves, new protective goggles, or medical gowns), please contact the Athens County Health Department. The items donated will be accounted for and replenished as supplies allow to do so.

Please follow below procedure to donate. Thank you.
