Senior Aurora staff have been monitoring daily the status of the coronavirus (“Covid-19”) and met today to discuss recommendations to help keep our city and its residents healthy. Three cases of the virus have been confirmed now in Cleveland. Today Governor Mike DeWine held a press conference recommending the cancellation of college classes and limiting spectators at sporting events and concerts. 

In light of these recommendations and recent developments, The City of Aurora is taking the following precautionary measures to keep our city healthy:

  • We are cancelling all social and recreational activities at the Walker Building from today, March 10, 2020, through March 27. We are working with the schools regarding activities occurring on school premises. This WILL NOT affect voting on March 17 unless the Board of Elections plans change.
  • All senior trips and activities are being cancelled through March 27, but seniors should contact Parks and Recreation at 330.562.4333 with specific questions.
  • The Aurora Transportation Program will continue and arrangements are being made to clean the van daily.
  • We are cleaning all “high-touch” surfaces in our public buildings every day.

CDC recommendations for minimizing the spread of communicable diseases include the following:

  • Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, including when coming and going from home.
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or the inside of your elbow when coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoiding contact with people who are sick.
  • Staying home if you are sick and contacting your healthcare provider.

You can find more detailed recommendations on the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention-treatment.html.

Additional information on the coronavirus, including resources for health care workers, community and faith-based organizations, etc. can be found on the Portage County Health District website at www.portagehealth.net, the Ohio Department of Health website at https://odh.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/odh/home, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html. For general questions about COVID-19, call the Ohio Department of Health call center at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH. The call center is open 7 days a week from 9:00am-8:00pm.

The City of Aurora will continue to monitor the status of Covid-19 and will adjust city programs and activities accordingly. If you have questions please call Aurora City Hall at 330.562.6131.
