Stay Informed: Coronavirus (COVID-19):

As critical components of the safety-net system, the CHN understands how our members are at the forefront of managing community health care needs and concerns. There is a lot of false information out there about COVID-19 and the updates are constant. Getting your information from reputable sources such as the World Health Organization (WHO)Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) will ensure you have the most accurate, up to date information. These sites are packed with information, strategies to help keep our communities healthy. 
The National Association for Free and Charitable Clinics (NAFC) has developed a Coronovirus Resource page. Here you will find information on: Free and Charitable Clinic Coronavirus Protocols, Health Department Directories, Uninsured Testing Cost, Clinic Disaster Plans and Work from Home Policies, Discounted Medical Supplies, Informational Webinars, and Clinical Resources.
For the most up-to-date status of COVID-19 and available informational resources, please visit the CDC website
