Effective starting 3/24/20
No visitors will be allowed.
Persons presenting for testing or treatment will need to enter through the Emergency Room Entrance.
Everyone will have their temperature taken. No one may access the building with a temperature of 100.4 or higher – the CDC’s definition of a fever.
Wood County Hospital announcements will be shared as they become available. For immediate updates, follow us on twitter @WCHosp.
How is COVID-19 spread?
COVID-19 is spread in the same way that seasonal flu can be spread, from person to person within close contact and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
Spread can be prevented by avoiding crowded/close conditions and frequent hand hygiene.
Who are at high risk?
Populations at high risk of severe illness are the elderly, and persons with underlying health conditions such as diabetes, COPD, or CHF.
Based on available evidence, children do not appear to be at higher risk for COVID-19 than adults. For more information about those at risk, visit the CDC’s current Risk Assessment page.
