Bed Bugs!

To provide better service in alerting the American people to unsafe, hazardous or defective products, six federal agencies with vastly different jurisdictions have joined together to create  - www.recalls.gov - a "one stop shop" for U.S. Government recalls.

Septic System Repair Money Available

Madison County Public Health has access to funding from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to assist homeowners with repairs or replacement of their existing household sewage treatment systems (septic tanks, aeration systems, leach fields, and more). The goal of the funding is to reduce the risk of untreated sewage entering our drinking water and clean waterways in Madison County. We currently have access to more than $150,000 to repair or replace failing sewage systems or to connect homeowners to sanitary sewer (if accessible). Download the application and read more about this funding opportunity, including income requirements, by CLICKING HERE. Help us keep our wonderful Madison County waterways clean and let us help you fix your sewage system! Please contact Jennifer Michaelson or Landon McKenzie at 740-852-3065 option 6 for more information.

Enteroviruses are very common viruses. There are more than 100 types of enteroviruses. It is estimated that 10 to 15 million enterovirus infections occur in the U.S. each year. Most people infected with enteroviruses have no symptoms or only mild symptoms, but some infections can be serious. Infants, children and teenagers are most likely to get infected with enteroviruses and become sick. This is because they do not yet have immunity from previous exposures to these viruses. Most enterovirus infections in the U.S. occur seasonally during the summer and fall, and outbreaks often tend to occur in several-year cycles. > Read More
