At the 2021 Lorain County Fair, Lorain County Public Health (LCPH) will continue to protect fairgoers’ health. LCPH supplies hand sanitizer across the fairgrounds to prevent the spread of disease. LCPH also conducts food safety checks and education with food vendors.

“LCPH protects the public’s health even when there’s not a pandemic,” says David Covell, MPH, RS. “Every day, we work to protect your well-being, prevent diseases, and promote overall health.” To achieve these goals, LCPH provides COVID-19 vaccines as well as other recommended vaccines to prevent disease. They inspect every place in Lorain County that sells food, such as restaurants and grocery stores. They act as consultants and educators for homeowners that have household sewage systems (septic systems). LCPH also runs programs to encourage wearing a seat belt when traveling on the roads, driving sober and focused to prevent motor vehicle fatalities.

The 175th Lorain County Fair occurs Aug. 22 through Aug. 29 at 23000 Fairgrounds Road, Wellington, OH 44090.
