Good afternoon.
As we prepare for the statewide mask mandate to begin this evening at 6:00 p.m., I have attached a poster you can print and hang on your doors to remind visitors to wear their masks. As official signage from the state becomes available, I will forward that to you. Click here to print the Mandatory Mask Sign.
The order discussed during yesterday’s news conference has not yet been published on the coronavirus webpage. Up-to-date information can be accessed by visiting coronavirus.ohio.gov.
Fayette County remains at a level one in the Ohio Public Health Advisory System. Detailed information about the advisory system and indicators therein is found by clicking this link.
In other news, the Ohio Supreme Court issued an order allowing Ohio attorneys to receive required Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit for serving as precinct election officials on Election Day this fall. The decision supports the Secretary’s Ready for November initiative by recruiting new poll workers to ensure Ohio voters have a safe, secure, and fair election.
“Safe and accessible in-person voting is essential, and that requires large numbers of dedicated poll workers who will deliver accurate, accessible, secure, elections for their fellow Ohioans,” Secretary LaRose said. “The smart, hard-working, patriotic men and women who practice law in our state are ideally suited for this crucial public service.”
The office will be closed Monday, July 27 through Friday, July 31, 2020. We will reopen at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, August 3, 2020. There will be no daily updates sent next week, so pleased stay tuned to the coronavirus.ohio.gov website for current information and guidance.
Wishing you all a great evening,
