Robocalls pretending to be Allen County Public Health

It has come to Allen County Public Health’s attention that county residents may be receiving automated phone calls which appear to be from Allen County Public Health but in fact are not.

Allen County Public Health does not use automated systems to discuss personal health matters. Additionally, Allen County Public Health does not disclose personal health information through automatic messages of any kind, including robocalls or voicemails.

If a resident receives a call from Allen County Public Health unexpectedly and does not trust that it is actually from ACPH, please feel free to hang up and call us back at 419-228-4457.
