Coronavirus Outbreak

CDC is closely monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus (named “2019-nCoV”) that was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China and which continues to expand. Chinese health officials have reported thousands of infections with 2019-nCoV in China, with the virus reportedly spreading from person-to-person in many parts of that country. Infections with 2019-nCoV, most of them associated with travel from Wuhan, also are being reported in a growing number of international locations, including the United States.

Lead staff at the Madison County Health Department are monitoring reports from CDC and other sources.

New Car Seat Inspection Sites

Car seats are one of the best ways to protect your child in an automobile, but only if they are installed and used correctly. In Madison County, we are fortunate to have several organizations that have trained car seat installers who will help you install and use your car seat. Their services are free.

Harm Reduction/Syringe Exchange Program

Hours
Richmond: Tuesdays, 3-7PM, 214 Boggs Lane
Berea: Thursdays, 1-5PM, 1001 Ace Drive (off of Rash Road)

The Madison County Health Department operates a Syringe Exchange Program (SEP) to reduce the spread of blood borne diseases such as Hepatitis C and HIV among people who inject drugs (PWID) by providing a scientifically proven public health service that adopts and utilizes the best practices established for harm reduction in this population. Its goals include:

  • Address the spread of blood borne diseases among PWID through best practices in harm reduction.
  • Reduce the amount of used syringes disposed of in the community.
  • Act as an access point for individuals to obtain referrals and information on drug treatment and rehabilitation, health service, insurance enrollment, counseling, and other social services that may be available.
  • Safeguard all participants and assure that PWIDs are treated with respect and without stigma.
  • Assure that all issues that require a referral for services are addressed in a systematic and confidential manner.

Services at the SEP include:

  • Clean injection equipment.
  • Hepatitis C, HIV, STD and pregnancy testing available at MCHD clinic locations and/or if operating in a mobile unit, rapid HIV testing with referrals for other testing as needed if space permits.
  • Hepatitis A vaccination is available at the SEP site. Referral for other immunizations, including the annual influenza vaccine, that are available at MCHD clinic locations. 
  • Education regarding Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and HIV/AIDS transmission, risk reduction, sexually transmitted diseases, condoms, and safe sex information.
  • Proper syringe disposal, including the expectation that participants will return used needles to the SEP for proper disposal.  
  • A strict one-for-one exchange model will be employed that provides SEP participants with the same number of sterile syringes that the participant brings in for disposal. For example, if the participant disposes of 14 used syringes at the MCHRSEP, then she/he receives 14 new, sterile syringes in return.
  • Referrals for those who request health services or treatment services.
  • Free Narcan with training (when available).
