The following is a weekend message from Butler County Commissioners Leslie
Osche, Kim Geyer and Kevin Boozel, along with Steven Bicehouse, Director
of Emergency Management, BHS President & CEO Ken DeFurio and Chief
Medical Officer David Rottinghaus, MD:
As we head into the Fourth of July weekend, Butler County Emergency Management
and the Butler County Commissioners join Butler Health System in urging
all residents to wear masks and practice social distancing when out in
public. There has been an increase in the number of positive COVID-19
in Butler County, and we want to be sure that we are protecting our health
care workers, service employees, police, first responders and our families,
along with avoiding a surge in hospital admissions related to COVID-19.
Butler County Emergency Management and the Commissioners support our medical
community in asserting the value of the mask, distancing and handwashing
in mitigating the spread of COVID-19, and supporting our businesses and
organizations in their continued successful operation.
Please: Wear a mask in public, practice social distancing of at least 6
feet, wash your hands, don’t touch your face, and if you feel at
all sick, stay home.
Have a safe and restful Fourth of July weekend.
