Addressing COVID-19 Concerns in Amish Country

Amish settlements can be found in 31 states in the US, and Ohio is home to two of the worlds largest communities.

Outbreaks of COVID-19 have been observed in locations where Amish communities reside, and results of a current survey of Amish community members noted a lack of access to health information and misinformation about the COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2 global pandemic.

Helping Seniors Take Health Decisions into Their Own Hands

Health information can change quickly. In an underfunded public library, this translates into out of date resources that can misinform consumers. Unfortunately, the capacity of our public computing is insufficient to meet the needs of our community, and therefore directing people to online health resources such as MedlinePlus is a challenge. Additionally, we do not have the staffing capacity to provide instruction on available, accurate resources. Our residents, and especially our seniors, are unaware of the free, easy, and accurate material available through MedlinePlus.
