Pictured below is Gary the Germ that drops by the kindergarten and Pre-K classes to help them learn about what germs are, how they are spread, and what they can do as children to prevent the spread of germs. Please call the Brooke County Health Department if you are interested in Gary making an appearance at an event.


The Brooke County Health Department also educates older students about ticks and the diseases they spread.
