Ohioans are anxiously awaiting the reopening of the state when the Stay at Home Order expires on May 1st. However, it is important to understand why Ohio is planning for a slow opening. COVID-19 is still spreading in Ohio communities. The plan is to reopen slowly to prevent spikes of COVID-19 cases.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine today announced the expansion of Ohio’s partnership with Battelle to extend their sterilization services to law enforcement agencies and EMS providers.

The Ohio Department of Public Safety and Battelle have now partnered to sterilize N-95 masks for all of Ohio’s first responders. Battelle is providing this service for free.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol developed a statewide collection and distribution system to make this process as simple as possible for local first responders.

Beginning this Friday, local law enforcement agencies and EMS agencies can bring their packaged N-95 masks to any Ohio State Highway Patrol post in the state, and troopers will then bring the masks to Battelle in Columbus where they will be sterilized. The patrol will then bring the masks back to each post where law enforcement and EMS agencies can pick them up.

"This will contribute greatly to our efforts to protect Ohio’s protectors," said Governor DeWine. "This process was developed by our Public Safety Strike Force and is a good example of our first responder members identifying a problem and working with their state partners on a solution."

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of retired Deputy Jim Snell. Jim Snell served for many years with the Madison County Sheriff's Office finishing his career as a Sergeant. Madison County surely lost a great man, but his memories will live on forever with the songs that he wrote and sang for the many that knew him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this trying time.

Ohio took many early precautions with strict stay at home orders. We can see it is working, but we are not at the end of this marathon. Everyone needs to continue to do their part until we are at the end of the curve. If we let up now, we will likely see an increase in cases. We can avoid this with your help. Keep staying home Madison County!

By being #InThisTogetherOhio we will get closer to being able to start sports leagues and enjoying the warmer weather together. Please continue to follow Ohio’s strict orders until they are lifted. We know it is hard, but we can do it!

There are 20 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Madison County. The age range of cases is 24-76 years old. For more info please visit covid.madisonph.org. Ohio is taking necessary precautions to slow the spread but we do expect to continue to see a rise in cases. MCPH is working with the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) to conduct contact tracing to determine if any of the close contacts of these individuals are sick. All of these close contacts are asked to quarantine themselves for 14 days and monitor themselves for symptoms of fever, cough, or shortness of breath. If you are not contacted, you did not have close extended contact with the cases.

Our case count is updated daily on our website, covid.madisonph.org, at 1:30pm. Social media will be updated at 1:30pm every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday as needed. MCPH advises not getting caught up in numbers but remaining informed and aware of COVID-19 in the community.

The COVID-19 virus spreads mainly between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) through respiratory droplets. Social distancing is increasing the physical space between people, at least 6 feet, to avoid spreading illness. If we don't distance ourselves we put others at risk, especially our older loved ones or those with existing health conditions.

As we enter Easter weekend, please do not visit in groups or hold Easter egg hunts with anyone outside of your household. The Stay at Home Order states that purposeful gathering is only allowed for individuals who live together in the same household. This includes outdoor activities like walking, biking, scavenger hunts, and cookouts. We know this is difficult as all of us want to spend time with our families, but this is for the greater good of our county!

Thank you to all of those who are doing their part by practicing social distancing and washing their hands! #InThisTogetherOhio

Stop the spread – wear a cloth mask! It’s the right thing to do. It won’t protect you from getting sick, but it WILL help prevent you from spreading this virus to others. This week the CDC announced that up to 25% of people with COVID-19 may be asymptomatic. Never put a mask on someone who cannot remove it themselves or on a child under age 2. For DIY help, including how to make a no-sew mask from a t-shirt, visit covid.madisonph.org. #InThisTogetherOhio #clothmasks
