HEAT EXHAUSTION OR HEAT STROKE???

With today being quite hot across the region, we all need to be reminded that staying cool is important. We know many work outdoors or in the heat and that makes staying cool tough. Also, hydration is important. Highs today in the 90's and heat index values between 90 and 100 degrees will make for dangerous conditions if you do not follow precautions!

Here is a helpful chart explaining the difference between heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Both are dangerous and you should know the symptoms of each. Stay cool and hydrated today! Be sure to check on neighbors and the elderly!

Proud to call him our Chief.

As we kick off National EMS Week, we are pleased to recognize Doug LaRue, Lima Memorial EMS Manager, for his unwavering commitment to our first responders. A 25-year EMT himself, Doug values the role of our pre-hospital providers and goes to great lengths to provide the education, tools and resources they need to deliver exceptional care in the field.

Even more, Doug approaches every situation with a smile and β€œcan-do” attitude. His passion for the EMS community, Lima Memorial and the greater Lima region is second to none. For this, among so many other reasons, Doug was nominated for the prestigious 2020 Ohio Hospital Association Health Care Worker of the Year Award.

Congratulations, Doug, on a well-deserved honor.

Responsible Restart Ohio

RESPONSIBLE RESTART OHIO:

The guiding principles of the Responsible RestartOhio plan are protecting the health of employees, customers, and their families, supporting community efforts to control the spread of COVID-19, and responsibly getting Ohio back to work.

"We put this plan together based on all the information we have about how dangerous COVID-19 still is right now, balanced with the fact that it's also dangerous to have people not working," said Governor DeWine. "COVID-19 is still out there. It's still killing people. We're asking Ohioans to be reasonable and rational. Please don't take huge chances, and please use common sense when you go out and where you go out."

Beginning on May 4, 2020, manufacturing, distribution, and construction businesses may reopen if these businesses can meet mandatory safety requirements for customers and employees. The full Responsible RestartOhio plan for manufacturing, distribution, and construction can be found at coronavirus.ohio.gov/ResponsibleRestartOhio.

Beginning on May 4, 2020, general office environments may reopen if these businesses can meet mandatory safety requirements for customers and employees. The full Responsible RestartOhio plan for general office environments can be found at coronavirus.ohio.gov/ResponsibleRestartOhio.

Beginning on May 12, 2020, consumer, retail and services, may reopen if these businesses can meet mandatory safety requirements for customers and employees. The full Responsible RestartOhio plan for consumer, retail and services can be found at coronavirus.ohio.gov/ResponsibleRestartOhio.

The general safe business practices that all businesses must follow as they reopen are:

Requiring face coverings for all employees, and recommending them for clients and customers at all times Conducting daily health assessments or self-evaluations of employees to determine if they should work Maintaining good hygiene at all times such as hand washing and social distancing Cleaning and sanitizing workplaces throughout the day and at the close of business or between shifts Limiting capacity to meet social distancing guidelines

"I have an obligation as the Governor of Ohio to get people back to work and keep them safe. Opening everything up at once would not be consistent with the obligation to keep people safe," said Governor DeWine. "Our Responsible RestartOhio plan is the best guarantee that Ohioans will feel safe going to stores and employees will feel safe going to work. I'm optimistic about our future, but we can't be reckless."

CONTINUED CLOSURES:

The following types of establishments are ordered to remain closed due to their increased risk of potential COVID-19 exposure:

Schools and daycares Dine-in restaurants and bars (carry-out is still permitted) Personal appearance and beauty businesses Older adult daycare serveries and senior centers Adult day support or vocational rehabilitation services in group settings Entertainment, recreation, and gyms

For greater detail on the types of businesses that must stay closed, visit coronavirus.ohio.gov/ResponsibleRestartOhio.

STAY AT HOME ORDER / LARGE GATHERINGS:

Because the danger of COVID-19 still exists, Ohio's Stay at Home order will remain in effect to encourage Ohioans to continue making reasonable, rational decisions about leaving home.

Although anyone is susceptible to getting sick with COVID-19, those who are 65 or older are encouraged to be especially careful, as are those with high-risk conditions such as chronic lung disease, moderate to severe asthma, heart conditions, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, or liver disease, as well as those who are immunocompromised or obese.

Large gatherings of more than 10 people are still prohibited.

MORE INFORMATION:

More detailed information on the Responsible RestartOhio plan can be found at www.coronavirus.ohio.gov/ResponsibleRestartOhio.

CURRENT OHIO DATA:

There are 16,325 confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19 in Ohio and 753 confirmed and probable COVID-19 deaths. A total of 3,232 people have been hospitalized, including 978 admissions to intensive care units. In-depth data can be accessed by visiting

Responsible RestartOhio is about protecting the health of employees, customers, and their families; supporting community efforts to control the spread of the virus; and, leading in responsibly getting Ohio back to work.

Ohioans Encouraged to
Wear Cloth Masks in Public;
Governor Signs TeleHealth
Executive Order;
New Wi-Fi Hotspot Locator

(COLUMBUS, Ohio)β€” Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, Lt. Governor Jon Husted, and Dr. Amy Acton, MD, MPH, today urged Ohioans to begin wearing cloth masks while in public, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Yesterday, the CDC issued the recommendation that citizens wear face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
"In many cultures around the world, wearing a mask is just part of the culture - it is a socially accepted act of kindness," said Governor DeWine. "Wearing a mask should not scare people. It is a good thing. It is a considerate thing. It is a courageous thing."
Wearing a mask will not prevent someone from contracting COVID-19, but it can help prevent them from spreading it to others -- especially if they have it, but are not yet showing symptoms.
Wearing a cloth mask in public is NOT mandatory, but it is strongly recommended. Cloth masks are not a substitute for social distancing, but rather, it is a complement to social distancing.
Guidance on how to make a homemade mask can be found on coronavirus.ohio.gov.
Medical supply masks, such as N95 respirators, MUST be reserved for healthcare workers, first responders, and those who are known to be sick. Anyone with personal protective equipment to donate to frontline workers. To donate, visit coronavirus.ohio.gov.

Thank you to all who made this possible!

The Hardin County Emergency Operations Center was able, through very generous donations from area companies and partners to give our first responder agencies a good stockpile of Personal Protective Equipment prior to our suspected surge of cases!

We thank every one of our donors from area companies, partners, and individuals! You are very much appreciated!

We are going to make it through this, and with everyone doing their part we help keep all Hardin County citizens safe!
