Effective January 1st 2023 The Coshocton County Health Department and Coshocton City Health Department Combined into a Combined Health District. We are currently operating out of the 724 South 7th Street location, soon to be at 637 Chestnut Street location (Old Hopewell site).  For any questions please contact us at 740-622-1426.  For Any licensing payments, birth/death certs, etc.  that need to be made whether your located in City/County, please write checks out to Coshocton Public Health.

Please be advised:

Some of our contracted COVID Case Investigators are calling from a 415-869-8360 number (which shows as a California number). We are working on a way to have it show as our agency. But until then, if receiving a call from this number, it is NOT a scam. Please feel comfortable to answer as they are calling to help.


Coshocton County COVID-19 Home Test Kit Distribution

Those exposed to someone who has tested positive should self-quarantine, watch for symptoms and take a COVID test within five to seven days, sooner if symptoms show up.

COVID-19 home test kits are covered under most insurance and can be picked up at your local pharmacy.  Due to increased demand for home tests and to assist those unable to obtain home tests through their pharmacy, the Coshocton County General Health District is partnering with the Coshocton Public Library to boost home test kit availability via their curbside pickup only service Mondays – Saturdays at both of these locations, first come, first served:

Location & Hours of Operation:

  1. Coshocton Public Library M-W 9:30-8 p.m., TH & Fri 9:30-6 p.m., Sat 9:30-5 p.m.
  2. West Lafayette Branch M-W 10-7 p.m., TH & Fri 10-5 p.m., Sat 10-3 p.m.
  • DO NOT enter the library.
  • DO NOT hoard test kits.
  • DO NOT call to reserve test kits.
  • DO NOT ask staff to assist with testing.
  • DO NOT ask staff for medical advice.
  • DO park in a curbside pickup parking spot
  • DO call when you arrive
    • (Coshocton 740-622-0956)
    • (West Lafayette 740-545-6672)
  • DO tell staff how many test kits are needed
    • One per member of your household

To decrease severity of symptoms, choose to get vaccinated – the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Stop the Spread:

  • Maintain safe distancing.
  • Consider wearing masks indoors.
  • Stay home if you have any signs or symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitizer.
  • Regularly disinfect high touch surfaces.
  • Consider testing (even if no symptoms) before attending family/community events (fairs, concerts, etc.)
