PACC COVID-19 UPDATE

PACC is monitoring the development and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will keep the communities and members we serve up to date on any information and services to help businesses. We are going through this unprecedented disruption together. The Chamber office is closed out of caution for our staff and members. While we may not be “in the office” physically, we will be working remotely each day to ensure that your business is prepared for what’s to come. While the precautions we are taking now are necessary, we are still conducting business as usual. We are available by email and phone and will continue to be a voice for your business in the coming weeks as our community focuses on navigating this situation.

Cuyahoga County is currently LEVEL 3. Gatherings of more than 10 people are prohibited. Governor Mike DeWine announced on Thursday, July 23, a statewide mask mandate is in effect for citizens living in all 88 Ohio counties.

Governor DeWine also announced a travel advisory for all individuals coming into Ohio from states reporting positive COVID-19 testing rates of 15 percent or higher. Those traveling from one of the following states should self-quarantine for 14 days at home or in a hotel.
(Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, Nevada, South Carolina, Texas) The self-quarantine recommendation applies to those who live in Ohio and to people who are traveling into Ohio from any of these states.

All businesses must follow general safe business practices as they reopen. Those include 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; maintaining good hygiene and social distancing; cleaning and sanitizing workplaces; and limiting capacity to meet social distancing guidelines.
