Coronavirus (COVID-19) UpdateMarch 10, 2020
Yesterday, Governor Mike DeWine confirmed that three people in Cuyahoga County have tested positive for COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Those that have been in close contact with the three positive cases are currently quarantined at home for a minimum of 14 days.
While there is no reason for panic, the City of Lakewood will continue to closely monitor the situation and take direction from the Cuyahoga County Board of Health and the Center for Disease Control.
As a reminder, the City asks that residents take common-sense precautions such as washing your hands often with soap and water while avoiding close contact with people who are sick. The City has advised all employees that they should stay home if they are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness including temperature over 100.4 degrees. In addition, the City has ordered hand sanitizer, cleaning wipes, and disinfectant sprays for all departments to assist with keeping surface areas, especially those that are public-facing, clean.
At this time, regional and City leadership are not canceling any major events. However, this situation is changing rapidly. Residents should check www.onelakewood.com and follow us on social media for alerts regarding the cancellation of City meetings or events.
