This afternoon, Governor DeWine announced a much-anticipated “Stay at Home” order that will go into effect tomorrow, March 23 at 11:59 p.m. until April 6. This order mandates that Ohioans stay at home unless they are traveling to work for an essential business or doing an activity that is declared essential. A list of essential businesses and activities can be found at coronavirus.ohio.gov. I want to reassure you that the basics you need including groceries, gas stations, and pharmacies will all remain open.
The City of Grandview Heights has taken steps to reduce the spread of COVID-19 by scaling back operations, and I encourage you to follow recommendations such as social distancing and frequent hand washing to do your part to slow the spread. I encourage you to comply with this most recent order to help protect yourself, your loved ones, and your fellow Ohioans. More information will be made available tomorrow on how this order will impact the City’s operations.
The strength and support our community has demonstrated through this unparalleled and challenging time gives me great pride. We have been encouraged to “find the helpers” in this crisis and Grandview Heights is home to many of helpers. Be well and stay safe.
Mayor Greta M. Kearns
