 Summit County Extends Local Public Health Order

 SUMMIT COUNTY – Summit County Public Health has extended the current local Public Health Order through September 30. Masks continue to be required only for individuals ages 2 – 11 years old, who cannot receive the protection of the vaccine, in indoor group settings such as childcare centers, camps, and schools.

 On July 27, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued new guidance recommending mask wearing for the general public, including those who are fully vaccinated, in areas where there is substantial or high COVID-19 transmission (defined by greater than 50 new cases per 100,000 people in the past 7 days). Summit County meets this definition.

Summit County maintains high vaccination rates, and the vaccine remains highly effective in protecting against the COVID-19 virus. However, with recent increases in cases of the new and highly transmissible Delta variant across the nation and here in the community, Summit County Public Health is following the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in encouraging, although not mandating, the community wear masks in schools and indoor public settings regardless of vaccination status.

Due to the prevalence of the Delta variant in Summit County, all community members are strongly encouraged to get tested 3-5 days after a possible exposure, particularly if you have traveled or been in a higher risk environment such as a large concert venue or gathering, even if you do not have symptoms of illness. 

 Testing is extremely important in identifying infections and stopping the spread of the novel coronavirus.  People with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 which are: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea should be tested immediately.  If you feel you have been exposed to a positive case, get tested within three to five days of that exposure. Testing information is available on the Summit County Government website Coronavirus Testing page.
