Self-care
One important action is to make sure you are staying connected – to each other and to your family and friends. As human beings, we are wired for connection, and these connections strengthen our resilience to help us get through difficult times. Each day, make sure you are connecting with someone – whether through phone, video chat, text, or email. Reach out when you need it and reach out when you think someone else might need it. The following are links to assist you or loved ones to manage the feelings of anxiety and stress:

We are experiencing an increase in drug overdoses daily with 11 overdoses per day on average. From April 10 at 10 am to April 11 at 10 am, we had 7 overdose deaths. In addition to an increase in methamphetamine being laced with fentanyl, we have continued concern with cocaine laced fentanyl as a cause for increase overdose deaths.

Columbus Public Health has asked that community partners share a consistent message with the community. The message and graphic are listed below. Please share with your networks.  

These are uncertain and stressful times for everyone. Isolation and physical distancing from our friends and family, has resulted in many drinking more alcohol and experimenting with drugs to cope with fear, depression and boredom. We have had an increase in drug overdose deaths in the past 24 hours. Please check in on those you love! And always have naloxone on hand. Get free naloxone by mail here: columbus.gov/cfcap.
