COVID-19 Update - April 10
Dr. Francis DuFrayne
This week and the coming days are special to so many faiths. Easter, Passover and Ramadan provide even more reasons for us to gather with family and loved ones. Please remember during these days of celebration, your dedication to social distancing is as important as ever. Your efforts are making a difference and we are flattening the curve because each and every one of our actions. Please don’t undo all your sacrifices by attending a gathering or visiting anyone outside of those that live in your home.
Stay Home for Us
Remember that staying home and social distancing keeps our team members and our community safe.
Call for Masks
THANK YOU! We have received over 2,700 cloth masks from the community and they are being put to use every day. Your hard work is protecting our team. Now that the CDC has recommended everyone wear a mask, we are also providing them to our patients. You can help us meet our need for more masks by visiting OwensboroHealth.Org/SewMasks for instructions. Please be sure to share this post when you see it for everyone to see.

An Easter Message From Chaplain David Madewell
This year, we will be celebrating Easter differently than we ever have before. Much like the empty tomb where Christ was buried, our places of worship will also be empty. From Christ’s tomb comes the risen Lord saying, “Death does not have the final say.” As we look past our empty churches, let us find the love and hope of Christ in our homes this Sunday. May God bless you and your loved ones this week and this Easter Sunday. Stay safe, stay home, stay calm, stay hopeful.
We are continually overwhelmed by the support from our community. For the safety of our team members, patients and community, we are limiting the kinds of donations we can accept.
