Two OHA Members Featured in Ohio's New COVID-19 Prevention Awareness Campaigns

Gov. Mike DeWine Tuesday announced two ad campaigns aimed at spreading awareness of COVID-19 prevention measures and promoted additional pop-up testing sites for COVID-19.

The first campaign, called “I Believe,” focuses on the prevention measures two Ohio health care providers take to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These 15-second ads, provided by the Ohio Department of Health, will air for three weeks on broadcast cable, and social media across the state.

See the video featuring Cedarville physician Kevin Sharrett, MD, here and the video featuring Shareece Mashiska, a nurse manager at Mercy Health – St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital, here.

The second campaign, called “Up to All of Us,” focuses on the importance of taking proper preventative precautions to get Ohioans back to work and Ohio's economy working again.  The ad, provided by the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation, will air for three weeks on broadcast and cable television and features OhioHealth emergency physician Laura Espy-Bell, MD, and restaurant industry leader Gary Callicoat.

Expanded Public Testing

DeWine also promoted the expansion of pop-up testing sites across the state as part of Ohio's overall Responsible RestartOhio program. The Ohio Department of Health consolidated public testing information here.
