What's New

  • We need to continue to do everything we can together to stop the spread of COVID-19. The more we all stay Safer At Home the sooner we can get through the worst of this outbreak.

  • There has been some confusion regarding an isolation center being set up in Oshkosh. There is not an isolation center set up in Oshkosh at this time. However, we are working with other entities to have one ready if the need ever does arrive here.







  • If you are in need of free meals or groceries, take a look at this list from UW-Extension to find when and where you can get them. 



  • Donate or sell unused PPE here to help our communities in need.

  • REMINDER: Call your healthcare provider before going into a clinic if you are experiencing mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19. This allows them to provide guidance, prepare ahead if you need to be seen, and minimize risk to others.
