Gov. Mike DeWine

Remember these 3 things
1) You have done an amazing job with staying at home.
2) The coronavirus is still here. Just as deadly. Among us.
3) The essential tools to fight this are the same.
A) Distance, distance distance.
B) Washing your hands and surfaces
C) wearing a mask of face covering

“We need to ramp up testing.”
Testing
Gov. DeWine showed a chart, that one 5 weeks he hopes to test 155,560 people. About 20,000 a day. Is what they hope to achieve.

Tracing
Tracing goes with testing. Health Departments know how to do this, but never on this scale. (Of course Lakewood has no Health Department. Closed before closing the hospital)
By June first they will need to hire at least 1,750 workers to do tracings. They will work with local health departments on how to do this. (Of course Lakewood has no Health Department. Closed before closing the hospital)

On May 1
A health care opening.
Any procedure that does not need an overnight stay in a hospital will now be allowed.
Dentists can begin to see patients again.
Elective surgeries are still on hold.
A threat to a patient life by delay, cancer treatment, loss of a limb, has always been allowed.
You should never be afraid to see your doctor.

May 4
1)
Manufacturing, distribution and construction will be opened. (graphic posted later)
a) Every employee will need a face covering.
b) Daily health assessment by employers
c) Good hygiene
d) Sanitize Work Place
e) Limited capacity no more than 50% of the fire code.

Responsible Protocols For Getting Business Back to Work (see bottom of this page)

2) General Offices will be opened.
a) Asking companies to allow as many work from home as humanly possible.

May 12
1)
Consumer, Retail and Services will be reopened. (see bottom of this page)
a) Every employee and customers will need a face covering.
b) Daily health assessment by employers
c) Good hygiene
d) Sanitize work place
e) Limited capacity no more than 50% of the fire code.

The stay at home order will still be in place. But you can go to work or retail. No more than 10 people allowed in a gathering.

We need to get Ohio back to work.

5 PROTOCOLS FOR ALL BUSINESSES:
1. No mask, no work, no service, no exception. Require face coverings for employees and clients/customers at all times.
 
2. Conduct daily health assessments by employers and employees (self-evaluation) to determine if “fit for duty.”
 
3. Maintain good hygiene at all times – hand washing, sanitizing and social distancing.
 
4. Clean and sanitize workplaces throughout workday and at the close of business or between shifts.
 
5. Limit capacity to meet social distancing guidelines.
◦ Establish maximum capacity at 50% of fire code. 
◦ And, use appointment setting where possible to limit congestion. 

TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS WHEN A COVID-19 INFECTION IS IDENTIFIED:
• Immediately report employee or customer infections to the local health district.
 
• Work with local health department to identify potentially exposed individuals to help facilitate appropriate communication/contact tracing.
 
• Shutdown shop/floor for deep sanitation is possible.  
 
• Professionally clean and sanitize site/location.
 
• Reopen in consultation with the local health department.

The two bad mayors seem like one and the same to me.
Which one, again, is responsible for deciding that Lakewood doesn't need a Department of Health?

That would be Ed Fitzumers, no wait Mike SuGerald.

Sorry, I have the same problem, and basically they worked together since Mike got on Council, where he was hurried onto the LHA Board.

But Ed FitzGerald felt the same about the Health Department as he did driver's licenses. Simply not needed. Besides if you are going to get rid of the city's hospital, you do not need a health director speaking of how wrong it was.

It really hurts as Dr. Acton speaks of working with all 131 health departments in the state.

Well I am sure Armond Buddish has up high on his list. :roll:
