SUMMIT COUNTY – Summit County Public Health issued an amended and restated public health order Friday. The restated public health order contained no changes from the previous order (which expired July 31), so all prior requirements and restrictions remain in place, including a face-covering mandate in public spaces. The new health order will take effect at 12:01 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 1.

“We continue to see additional positive cases of COVID-19 that correspond with our reopening measures, and it is important for the community to stay vigilant with face mask wearing, physical distancing and limiting group sizes," Summit County Public Health Director Amy Wineland said. "We felt that it was important to continue the measures we have in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Summit County. As a community we have been diligent in adopting new habits and practices that mitigate disease transmission and we need to continue these practices as we head into flu season this fall."

Summit County’s local public health order aligns with the current state public health order and incorporates all state requirements and guidance. The new local health order will remain in effect until 11:59 p.m., Aug. 31.
