Social Distancing Guidelines

Social distancing is critical to slow the spread of COVID-19. Ohio is under a stay at home order, but that still means people can leave their homes to go to work at an essential service, or to travel for essential needs. These essential needs include buying groceries, getting prescriptions, checking on loved ones, etc. If you do have to travel outside of your home during this time, we want you to do it safely. Here are some tips to remember:

  • If going outside for a walk, maintain a 6 feet distance from anyone else outside.
  • If you don't live with them, don't visit them!
  • If going out to buy groceries, send one member per household. This will reduce the number of people in a store at one time.
  • Stay 6 feet apart from others in stores and public places. If your local stores have the option, place an order for pickup to limit person to person contact.
  • If you are checking on a family member or loved one, try to minimize interaction. Drop off supplies, food, and medication on their doorstep, rather than entering their home.
  • Please don't go out for any non-essential activities. This will help to keep you, your family, and our community safe. Stay at home!

If we all continue to practice social distancing and follow the stay at home order, we will flatten the curve of COVID-19. Memorial Health System, the Washington County Health Department, and the Marietta/Belpre City Health Department are all working together to keep the communities we love safe.
