CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS, COUNCIL CHAMBERS AND COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS
Effective immediately, the following policy will be in place regarding
Council Chambers. In order to comply with statewide health orders issued by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), a face covering or mask will be required to enter Council Chambers. The sergeant-at-arms will be monitoring compliance at the Council Chambers door. Anyone not wearing a face coving entering Council Chambers will be offered a complimentary mask by the sergeant-at arms.
Per a conversation I had today with Crawford County Public Health Director Kate Siefert, there is still a statewide exemption in place for anyone who is "medically or developmentally unable to wear a mask." This is under Section 7 of the November 13, 2020 ODH order titled: Directors Order for Retail and Business Compliance for Facial Coverings throughout the State of Ohio. See the enclosed ODH Order attached to this letter. Anyone meeting the requirements for that will still be allowed into Council Chambers without a mask or facial covering, but we ask that you maintain six feet of social distance from other people in the chambers.
This policy for Council Chambers will be in effect for all regular meetings of City Council, Committee Meetings, and any other times that Council
Chambers are used by anyone else for any other purpose.
