Zika virus

Zika virus is spread to people through mosquito bites. The most common symptoms of Zika virus disease are fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis (red eyes). The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting from several days to a week. Severe disease requiring hospitalization is uncommon.

In May 2015, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) issued an alert regarding the first confirmed Zika virus infection in Brazil. The outbreak in Brazil led to reports of Guillain-Barré syndrome and pregnant women giving birth to babies with birth defects and poor pregnancy outcomes.

In response, CDC has issued travel notices for people traveling to regions and certain countries where Zika virus transmission is ongoing.

January is National Radon Action Month!

 

Radon is a naturally occurring, invisible, odorless gas that is harmlessly dispersed in outdoor air, but when trapped in buildings, can be harmful at elevated levels. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer and present in elevated levels in about 50% of area homes. The only way to know if you have an elevated level in your home is to test. Act now as winter is the best time to test for radon gas. If your home has unsafe concentrations of radon gas, it can be fixed. Coupons for free test kits may be obtained at the Health District office.

Congratulations to Ohio’s Newly PHAB-Accredited Local Health Departments!

 

The national Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) announced last week the latest local and state health departments to receive accreditation, including ODH and three more of Ohio’s local health departments – Erie County Health Department, Huron County Public Health, and Medina County Health Department. Congratulations to the employees of all three local health departments for joining a select group of local health jurisdictions in Ohio and nationally that have earned PHAB accreditation! In Ohio, eight of 122 local health jurisdictions are now PHAB-accredited: Columbus Public Health; Delaware General Health District, Erie County Health Department, Huron County Public Health, Licking County Health Department, Mahoning County District Board of Health, Medina County Health Department, and Summit County Combined General Health District. All of Ohio’s local health jurisdictions must be accredited by July 1, 2020. Nationally, only 96 state and local health departments are accredited, and two states – Ohio and Illinois – currently have nine PHAB-accredited health departments each. Despite the critical role of public health, there had not been nationally recognized standards for public health departments until 2011 when PHAB was launched with the support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The national accreditation program sets standards toward which the nation’s more than 3,000 governmental public health departments can continuously work to improve the quality of their services and performance.
