The Epidemiology and Environmental Health (EEH) department and the UK College of Public Health stand with Eastern Kentucky and its people. As part of our mission here at the College, we are here to prevent severe illness and injuries that impact the health of our communities. With that said, it’s even more important that we are providing actionable steps and helpful resources.

As our Commonwealth works to respond to and recover from this catastrophic flooding, health and safety threats do not end when the flood waters recede.

To help protect residents in flood-affected areas who are returning to and/or cleaning up damaged structures, these resources from the CDC, NCHH, NIH, NEHA, and others, provide proper ways to clean up hazardous areas. We are confident that you will find them useful and encourage you to share them with others.
