PLEASE BE ADVISED GOVERNOR DEWINE IS HOLDING A PRESS CONFERENCE TODAY AT 2PM. THIS IS A DEVELOPING SITUATION. STAY TUNED FOR FURTHER INFORMATION.
Dear Medina County Residents,
During Tuesday’s Medina County Commissioners’ Meeting, Health Commissioner Krista Wasoswki provided an update on COVID-19. At this time, there are three confirmed lab cases that have been identified in Cuyahoga County and they fully expect to have more confirmed cases in the coming days. The public health system has been doing their job to quarantine anyone who met the criteria for COVID-19 and isolating those who are ill. There is an entire network in place working 24/7 to protect our public health.
As concerns are growing, we are following the guidance of the Medina County Health Department, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Ohio Department of Health all of which are working together to combat this virus. At this time, Medina County will continue business as usual unless otherwise directed by the Public Health Officials. As the situation changes, we will keep you informed of any changes to our schedule that may be deemed necessary.
We want to remind you that if you are not feeling well, please stay home. The Medina County Health Department recommends that all Medina County residents practice personal prevention protection methods used to prevent the flu and other infectious diseases including washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoiding close contact with those who are sick, clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and items, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and stay home when you are sick. These practices will help to stop the spread of germs.
As always, the safety and well-being of our residents, employees and communities are of utmost importance to us. We will continue to monitor the developments of the virus.
