Receive narcan by mail order

For Immediate Release: 02-15-2022

Naloxone, also known as Narcan, is a medication that is administered nasally to quickly reverse an overdose caused by an opioid drug. It has been used safely for over 40 years and has no potential for abuse. Project DAWN (Deaths Avoided With Naloxone) is a network of opioid overdose education and naloxone distribution programs (OENDP) coordinated by the Ohio Department of Health.

Champaign Health District in Urbana invites the NCHD to share their Narcan (naloxone) Nasal Spray mail order link with residents in our community so everyone can have access to naloxone:

The link above will take you to a Microsoft Forms page, ask some questions, and it includes a training video. The Narcan is then shipped to the address provided for free, due to grant funding through ODH. For more information, visit http://www.champaignhd.com/narcan.

NCHD Adjusts response to covid-19 cases due to high volume

For Immediate Release: 01-20-2022

The Noble County Health Department is asking people who test positive for COVID-19 to isolate and notify those in their households and their close contacts. Those exposed to someone who has tested positive should self-quarantine, watch for symptoms and take a COVID-19 test within five to seven days, sooner if symptoms show up.

Due to the recent overwhelming surge in COVID-19 cases, the health department staff will no longer be individually contacting every Noble County resident who tests positive for the virus.

Our priority continues to be giving newly diagnosed people guidance on how and why to isolate. With the sheer volume of current and expected cases, we need the public’s help to make these notifications for quarantine in a speedy manner and to let people know of their risk.

To report new positive COVID-19 cases of Noble County residents ONLY, click here to be taken to our online form, or call us at 740-732-4958.

NCHD is also asking people who need a return to work/school/daycare letters to please use your test result as your letter to return to work/school/daycare. For more information follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

After Hours Emergency Protocol


The Noble County Health Department has an after-hours emergency answering service system.  This system gives the caller a prompt in the case of a public health emergency to leave a message in a specified mailbox. Any message left in this voice mailbox will cause the system to contact the Nurse on call, who within the required time-frame shall call in to retrieve the message and follow up as required based on the situation protocol. All calls received after normal working hours that are determined to be a public health emergency will be relayed to the Health Commissioner or Medical Director.  The phone number of the answering service system is the same as the health department and is available 24 hours a day at 740-732-4958.
