Who We Are

The Clermont County Board of Health, which governs the Clermont County General Health District, was established in 1920. It was created by a state law that required every community in Ohio to be served by a public health district. After the deadly flu pandemic of 1918 that killed thousands of people across the country, health districts were set up across Ohio to protect people from disease.

Today, the Clermont County General Health District – known as Clermont County Public Health, has a five-member board. Clermont County Public Health employs approximately 50 staff members divided into five divisions and is led by the Health Commissioner.
