The primary role for town governments such as Preble in this medical emergency is to facilitate the dissemination of information and coordinate with county agencies to ensure our citizens have all necessary resources available to them.
The Town Offices currently remain open during standard hours.

We are in touch with appropriate county and state contacts and will provide any specific information for Preble as it becomes available.
For now, we should all be practicing social distancing and listening to our community for anyone in need.
