Local and Community Resources

In a cooperative effort by Summit County, the Towns, and various non-profits, there are many resources available to get residents who lost income due to COVID-19 the aid they need. This page has information about rental assistance, food pantries and meals, employment options, and mental health resources.

Food Pantry Locations

COVID-19 Testing

Summit County is continually working with providers to ensure that anyone in our community who is symptomatic, high-risk, or asymptomatic, may easily receive a test. All providers are using the same test, so individuals may choose whichever of the following options they prefer, and all providers will contact the patient following testing with results and further guidance on care based on results.

Visit Summit County’s COVID-19 Testing page for additional information for information in Spanish.

COVID-19 Vaccination

Summit County encourages ALL individuals to receive the vaccine. All individuals age 12 and older are now eligible. Individuals under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Vaccines are currently widely available and easy to schedule. Please visit Summit County Government’s Vaccination page to find out when and where to get the vaccine.
