Welcome

Commissioner Pic3Commissioner Pic3Commissioner Pic3Commissioner Pic3Commissioner PicJPGThe news that a healthcare worker who visited Ohio and has now been diagnosed with Ebola does bring the threat of Ebola closer to home.  Even though Ebola is scary, it is important to remember that it is not as easy to catch as many other diseases. The key is to base our actions on facts and information rather than fear and headlines.

 Allen County has strong partnerships and a history of working together.  We have a high quality network of health care providers and we are working with them to prepare for and respond to any serious outbreak.  Ebola is an evolving situation and we will continue to work with our local, state and federal partners as the situation unfolds.

Please get the facts – check out our links about Ebola, and follow us for current information and updates.  In the meantime, keep yourself healthy by maintaining your regular schedule of healthy eating, activity and rest.

In good health,

Kathy Luhn, Allen County Health CommissionerCommissioner Pic3
