Health Department applauded for work

I'd like to send a public Shout Out to the Crawford County Health Department. 

The Health Department was required to monitor my health status for 21 days after I returned from Sierra Leone as an Ebola Health Care Worker and for most of that time this required a daily visit to my home by Judy Powell, RN. The monitoring was conducted in the spirit of respect, support, and professionalism and for this I am truly grateful. 

Unfortunately, this has not been the experience of many of my colleagues. Thank goodness we have such talented, dedicated and enlightened health department leadership.
