The Lake County General Health District has moved the county from a Level 2 to Level 1! 👏👏👏 Good work everyone!

For those curious about events, once the LCGHD commissioner gives the go ahead, we will start the car cruise and scheduled fall events again. As of this week, we are still on hold. Thank you.

---

*CORRECTION: Once the LCGHD commissioner gives the go ahead, the Downtown Painesville Organization (organizers of the weekly Car Cruise) will meet as a group to determine if they will resume Car Cruises in 2020.

The City of Painesville will be working to modify their fall events like Story Time with the fire and police departments, Movie in the Park and Fall Fest in Rec Park.

Lake County has moved to a Yellow alert level.

Lake County History Center

Painesville, our county seat, has a rich history. Here is Abbot Mill on the Grand River 75 years ago. In case you missed it, Dan Maxson's latest blog points out landmarks past & present. Beat the COVID-19 blues and take a walking tour starting at the Veterans Park Gazebo, visiting 35 stops along the way. While some sights have been lost to time, the 2.92 mile tour can be a fresh air adventure trek through Painesville’s charming past. Below the blog post link are links to the WALKING TOUR.http://lakehistorycenter.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/LCHS-blog-July-2020-edited.pdf
Here are the two links for the walking tour:

◾️ Statement Addressing Protests vs Events ◾️

The City of Painesville supports community events as long as they can be done safely. Our commitment to protecting the safety of our community means we will follow the directives issued by the Lake County General Health District (LCGHD) during the pandemic. We place importance on the health and well-being of individuals and it is for this reason we followed the advice of the LCGHD. Any questions or concerns regarding the LCGHD decisions should be directed to them at lcghd.org or 440-350-2188.

We have heard and understood a number of recent concerns from residents surrounding protests. Protests differ from traditional events in that they are a constitutionally protected speech under the 1st amendment. This right is one of the founding ideals of our country and we are required to protect those rights. Fortunately, we have a long history of peaceful protests here in the City of Painesville. At each of the upcoming protests (one Friday night that is anti-health department and one Saturday night that is BLM), our primary goal is to ensure the safety of our community and those involved. The organizers of the two upcoming protests have ensured us that they plan to remain peaceful and respectful while exercising their 1st amendment right. In turn, we encourage all attendees to comply with LCGHD guidelines, which includes social distancing and wearing a mask.

No matter what your personal beliefs on Covid-19 may be, we ask that you respect the city’s compliance in the name of public health and respect the constitutional rights of others. Thank you.

📣 IMPORTANT UPDATE 📣 The Lake County General Health District (LCGHD) has advised that all Lake County municipalities postpone their remaining events due to rising Covid-19 cases in the county. Painesville will be cancelling its Wednesday night Painesville Concerts in the Park series and Friday night Painesville Car Cruise Fridays series to comply with the new directive.

The Painesville Farmers Market, which is hosted every Thursday, 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m., will remain operational as it is a registered Ohio farmers market that provides food to central Lake County. Fall 2020 events, like September’s Movie in the Park and End of Summer Block Party, will be put on hold until further direction is given from the LCGHD.
