Good evening.
In Governor DeWine’s address this evening, he laid out a path to Ohio’s complete reopening. Currently, Ohio stands at 179 Covid cases per 100,000 residents. At such time that Ohio’s case count hits 50 cases (or less) per 100,000 for a period of two weeks, all health orders will be rescinded.
The revised orders released by the Ohio Department of Health are linked below.
If you are interested in helping our Fayette County Health Department with their vaccine clinics, please read the statement below provided to us by Melissa Havens, Fayette County EMA. You do not need to be medically trained, as they have many jobs available.
Can your business help at vaccination clinics?
As Johnson & Johnson has just received approval for Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA, more vaccine will be making their way into Fayette County. With this additional vaccine, more clinics will be held, and the sizes of those clinics will increase. Additional staff will be needed to assist in making these clinics run smoothly. If you think your business could help with additional staff, please let us know. The current need is for staff to work the registration tables as residents and community members come in to sign in. These clinics are being held Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and the occasional Thursday, during the day. Days and times are not set in stone. Evening clinics could be scheduled at some point as well. If you have anyone to offer as a volunteer, we could accept them for a whole day, or just ½ day if that is all they are available. This could be for only 1 week, or it could be for the foreseeable future. Whatever works for you, we will take what we can get based on our needs.
Please contact Melissa Havens at the Fayette County Emergency Management Agency for further information at Melissa.havens@fayette-co-oh.com or 740-335-8264.
Enjoy your evening,
Julie
