Here’s some good news for you. The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center wants you to remain healthy and safe during the pandemic so they are distributing free care kits to the public.
According to their site, the medical center has partnered with the Columbus Police Department, Columbus Public Health, Franklin County Public Health, Columbus City Schools and the National African American Male Wellness Initiative along with other community partners to kits. These kits include isolation-grade masks, hand soap, hand sanitizers, toothbrushes and toothpaste. (While isolation-grade, these masks are not approved for use by providers in clinical settings.)
Distributions will occur in the areas of greatest need, including the ZIP codes 43219, 43211, 43207, 43223 and 43203.
