Clermont County Public Health hosts second PPE drop-off day

After a good turnout for the first personal protective equipment drop-off day, Clermont County Public Health has another drop-off day scheduled for Thursday, April 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Donations will be collected at Clermont County Public Health’s Permit Central location (2275 Bauer Road, Batavia, OH 45103).

The supply of personal protective equipment is critically low in our region and across the country. All donations collected will be redistributed to hospitals, healthcare facilities and local first responders.

Some of the items that are needed are:

The drop-off location will be a drive-through and will be exempt from the stay at home order that went into effect on 3/24/2020.

In addition to the public PPE drop off days, CCPH has also received two shipments of personal protective equipment from the Strategic National Stockpile which is the nation’s supply of medicine and medical supplies that can be used by local health departments during a public health emergency.

Anyone who has items to donate but can’t make the scheduled time can call 513-732-7499 to make other arrangements for dropoff.
