COVID-19

City of Green Response Update

Updated: March 16, 2020 

The State of Ohio has community spread of the COVID-19 virus, which means the infected person did not have contact with a person known to have the virus or have recently traveled to an area with a wide-spread outbreak. 

According to the Ohio Department of Health, once there is community spread that 1% of the population is infected. According to medical experts, the number of infected doubles every 6 days.  

See the Ohio Department of Health COVID-19 daily dashboard for the latest. 

We are following Governor DeWine’s and the Ohio Health Department’s recommendations to promote prevention activities to slow the spread of an outbreak.
