Stay Safe as Ohio Reopens

As more sectors of the economy prepare to reopen, here are a few tips that you can use to protect yourself against the spread of COVID-19.

  1. It is still recommended to stay home as much as possible.
  2. Consider wearing a mask/face covering in public. Some businesses may require the use of a face covering.
  3. If you must go out, maintain a 6 foot distance from others.
  4. Monitor symptoms daily. If you feel sick or develop COVID-19 symptoms stay home & separate yourself from others in your home.
  5. Evaluate your risk before entering a store or business. If conditions look unsafe, or if the business is crowded, leave and return at a later date. Avoid busy shopping times and continue to use online pickup and delivery services.
  6. Use hand sanitizer after being in public.
