Local heroes

Barb: Twelve suppliers, including Barb from Elyria, have been sewing face coverings since the beginning of the pandemic and they haven’t stopped. They donate the face coverings through LCPH, which distributes them to nonprofits and other local organizations with a need. As of August 4, these amazing neighbors have provided nearly 1,000 face coverings. LCPH has distributed them to 17 different youth, social service, and faith-based organizations.

Holly: Holly at Clearview High School/Lorain County Community College made cloth face coverings. We know this is a difficult time for high school and college students and are so glad to hear about young adults helping to keep Lorain County safe.

José from Lorain got sick with COVID-19 after caring for his wife, who got the disease after attending a family gathering. This family was a part of the increase in Hispanic cases in August, most of them linked to family gatherings. José's family and friends helped him recover; they got supplies to his second-floor balcony by pulling things up with ropes - he's now doing well.
