What Lebanon County residents need to know about coronavirus COVID-19

Use the above links to find further information regarding the COVID-19 virus as it impacts Lebanon County residents and public-facing* businesses, services, and facilities.

Residents looking for more detailed information about the virus, impacted local public-facing* business schedules and closings, utilize the links above.

Local public-facing* business and facilities looking to report changes on their normal operations for public notice, please visit https://helpdesk.lcdes.org or covidinfo@lcdes.org or 717-675-1380 (For official use only and no public information will be provided).

*public-facing refers to a facility that interfaces with a large volume of the public, ie, schools, grocery stores, etc.

The Lebanon County Commissioners, the Lebanon City Mayor, and the Lebanon Valley Chamber of Commerce are calling upon Lebanon County residents to search through our garages, basements, and storerooms to help supply the local health care system and first responders with life-saving Personal Protective Equipment including:

  • N95 masks
  • Surgical/dust masks
  • Elastomeric respirators
  • Eye protection
  • Latex- free disposable gloves
  • Commercially – made disposable disinfecting wipes – germicidal with bleach
  • Commercially – made disinfecting wipes > 70% alcohol
  • Commercially – made hand sanitizer and hand soap
Our doctors, nurses, health care workers, and first responders need us. Do you have any of these items at home? Properly used, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) can only be worn once safely before being discarded. Short supply across the country has left medical workers dangerously reusing masks and other items, putting them and patients at high risk for being exposed to and contracting COVID-19.
Furthermore, the CDC does not recommend personal use of PPE for those who are not health care workers or who are not sick. If you are healthy and have PPE at home or for your business, please donate these items to those who need it most. You can drop off PPE at the bottom of the loading dock of the Lebanon County Courthouse (400 S 8th St, Lebanon, PA 17042) in provided receptacles between the hours of 10 AM and 4 PM.
Please use #LebCoCares on social media referring to this campaign.
