Condoms

You may pick up FREE condoms in the health department lobby during normal business hours. Condoms are also available free at some area local business through our WearOne Campaign.

 

If you’re sexually active, protect yourself and your partner by using a condom the first time and every time you have sex. 

 

Store condoms in a cool, dry place and check expiration dates.
