The Meigs County Health Department is also reporting their Facebook page is currently unavailable for residence to gain valuable health information and updates on the COVID-19 pandemic. This comes after Facebook unpublishing the page for alleged violations of their “community standards and terms of service.” The Meigs County Health Department has appealed this decision by Facebook and are awaiting their decision. “We apologize to anyone who relies on our Facebook page for up to date information, including the counties case breakdowns,” stated a release from the Meigs County Health Department.
