Flood Clean-Up

The Health Department works with Northern Kentucky communities when disasters or weather-related conditions pose a threat to the population.  Due to continued heavy rains that have caused flooding in the City of Covington and surrounding areas, the Northern Kentucky Health Department is working with the City of Covington to inform residents on how to remain safe and avoid illness during flood clean-up.  Individuals with specific concerns about an injury or illness should contact their medical provider. Individuals exposed to flood water who have not been vaccinated for hepatitis A can seek vaccination through their medical provider, pharmacist or health department clinic for those that qualify.
