Information provided by the Miami County Health Department
MIAMI COUNTY - Miami County Public Health is issuing an update on the COVID-19 in Miami County.
As of today, Thursday, March 26, 2020 there was 1 new positive COVID-19 case reported that is associated with the outbreak at Koester Pavilion and Springmeade Health Center. This new case is a resident of Piqua. As pending tests, for Koester Pavilion and Springmeade residents and staff, come back, MCPH will report new cases when available.
In the coming days and weeks, there will be an increase in positive COVID-19 cases associated with community spread. This is expected and not a cause for alarm. This will be from the continued testing that is done for those with COVID-19 symptoms. MPCH wants to remind community members that if you have COVID-19 symptoms, call your health care provider first. If your symptoms are mild stay at home and treat yourself. If symptoms become severe seek medical attention.
It is important that everyone follow the Stay-At-Home order. By staying at home and practicing social distancing, we can help flatten the curve for Ohio and lessen the burden on the healthcare system.
MCPH will continue to work diligently with Ohio Department of health and local partners to address the situation as it changes.
