Yesterday, the Governor announced that Ohio’s Stay-At-Home Order has been extended through May 1, 2020.
Like most of the United States, we know that these are truly difficult and challenging times. Medical experts are saying that while we have not yet reached the peak of this pandemic event, the efforts we’re making to avoid standing near others is very important, and it is already making a difference.
While Logan County’s number of positive cases remain relatively low, we are still treating this as the “calm before the storm”.
All city departments are in operation maintaining essential services to our community. Our frontline associates include paramedics, firefighters, and police officers. Additionally, we are thankful for our community’s doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers for their dedication to the task at hand.
We ask for your patience and understanding during this critical phase of the spread COVID-19. Please reach out to our most vulnerable citizens to assist them. Continue to sanitize your hands, your work spaces and help others to appreciate the reasons that we keep a safe distance. These efforts ARE saving lives. Let’s help one another and all be a part of the solution. We will get through this TOGETHER! Thank you! #ohiostrong #shoplocal

As of 2:00 pm on March 11, 2020, Governor DeWine and ODH Director of Health announced that there is Community Spread of coronavirus within Ohio. This requires everyone to step up, and use multiple public health interventions to keep the spread of COVID-19 as low as possible, to protect all citizens.
Social distancing measures can reduce opportunities for person-to-person virus transmission while delaying the spread and slowing the growth of a pandemic.
Therefore, in Logan County you are advised to immediately avoid crowds, keep your distance from others, stop all forms of greeting that involve touching, wash your hands often for 20 seconds with soap and water, and cover your coughs and sneezes.
From a wider perspective, it may be necessary to cancel most gatherings, eliminate travel, look for alternative ways to work, learn and worship. This is particularly important for those over 65 who have the highest death rate from COVID-19.
The LCHD has provided the following documents to help individuals and households prepare for the coronavirus:
COVID-19 Household checklist
