COVID19

For the safety of the residents of Franklin County and our staff, FCCO has made the following changes starting today until further notice:
 
  • We are cancelling all shadowing and group tours to our office for 2021.
  • We are offering limited internships and medical school/hospital rotations for the remainder of 2021.
  • We are cancelling all autopsy viewing by law enforcement and other agencies at this time.
  • Funeral homes have been asked to come between the hours of 8am and 4pm, Monday through Friday or by appointment; weekends and holidays by appointment.  When they arrive they are asked to stay in or by their vehicles, a staff member will come outside to assist.
  • We are asking visitors to call instead of coming to our office. Answers to many questions by the public can be found on our website:  coroner.franklincountyohio.gov.
  • Please be patient.  Our staff is small and if staff members need to remain home during this time our services will be delayed.  We anticipate longer time delays for coroner reports and for public record requests.  At this time our priority will be coroner reports to families of decedents.
