Hamilton County Plans Facebook Live Event to Discuss COVID-19
County & Public Health Officials to Answer Community Questions
(NOBLESVILLE, MARCH 9, 2020) – The Hamilton County Commissioners, along with the Hamilton County Health Department and Hamilton County Emergency Management, are planning to host a Facebook Live event to help educate citizens and employees about COVID-19. The event will take place on all three agencies’ Facebook pages on Wednesday, March 18th at 8:30 p.m.
“We felt that a public meeting is contrary to current public health guidance and that this type of communication is one of the safest ways to educate our citizens,” says County Commissioner Christine Altman. “Any business you can conduct remotely right now is a best practice and certainly helps reduce risk of exposure."
Viewers can watch the event on the following Facebook pages: Hamilton County, Indiana, Hamilton County Emergency Management, and Hamilton County Health Department – Indiana.
“Knowledge is power,” says Chris Walker, emergency preparedness coordinator for the Hamilton County Health Department. “The better educated our community is about COVID-19, the better chance we have of containing it.”
Currently there are no known cases of COVID-19 in Hamilton County. For more information about COVID-19, please visit the Hamilton County Health Department.
