Thank you!

We are so grateful for your support! Community volunteers have sewn and donated thousands of fabric face masks to help our team members during the pandemic.

Owensboro Health currently has an adequate supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) on hand, but cloth masks work well for other circumstances and can help protect individuals in the community.

How You Can Help Combat COVID-19

Practice the Three Ws

  1. Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  2. Watch your distance (stay 6 feet apart from others who do not live in your household).
  3. Wear a mask.

These three actions can help protect you and your loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic.
