Ottawa County has been reduced to the Orange Level 2 advisory by the Ohio Department of Health, permitting county buildings to resume normal operating procedures on Monday, May 16.
County buildings will not require appointments in general, however, there may be some departments that prefer to maintain appointments and can do so at their discretion.
Visitors must continue to wear facial coverings at all times when visiting county facilities until the Ohio mandate is lifted or modified. Once the mandate is lifted, county buildings will immediately lift the requirement. That is expected to occur on June 2.
Other county agencies may be required to follow other mandates (Riverview Healthcare Campus and Senior Resources, for example) and will abide by those guidelines for their operating procedures.
Visitors will no longer be required to have their temperature taken upon entering the courthouse. The touchless machine will still be available at a central location for those that wish to use it.
County officials encourage the public to utilize on-line services, as available, and if you are not feeling well to refrain from visiting county offices until your symptoms have passed.
