Good morning Team,
As most of you may have heard by now, the Toledo Lucas County Health Department issued a Stay-at-Home Advisory yesterday. The advisory is effective immediately. The advisory is in response to the rapid increases in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and the positivity rate in the community.
County residents are advised to do the following:
Stay at home to the greatest extent possible and only to leave home to go to work or school or for essential needs such as medical care, groceries, medicine, and food pickup.
Not have any guests in your home unless they are essential workers, including for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Limit meetings and social events to 10 individuals, both indoors and outside, and to avoid traveling in and out of the state.
The County’s advisory supplements all current orders set forth by Ohio’s Governor and the Ohio Department of Health.
The Health Commissioner said, “We as a community, need to pull together to take the necessary precautions, to protect the health of ourselves, our loved ones, and preserving our healthcare systems. Lucas County has reached a critical point in the second surge of COVID-19, requiring us to undertake an extensive effort to slow the spread.”
To reinforce the Health Department’s advice, stay mindful of both your mental and physical health, not just for yourself, but your family members. During this time, maintain routine communication with friends and loved ones, good nutrition and physical activity, to the extent possible.
The Stay-at-Home Advisory will remain in place until December 17, two (2) consecutive incubation periods of COVID-19 (28 days), or until the Board determines a change to the guidance is appropriate.
“In mind, body and spirit, Stay Positive”
