Mayor Schweller Declares State of Emergency
On March 23, 2020, Mayor Schweller declared a state of emergency. This was done as a follow up to the most recent order for Ohio residents to not leave their homes unless out of necessity which goes into effect the evening of the 23rd. At the time of signing the declaration, federal, Ohio state and Greene County officials have all already declared their own emergency.
Declarations of emergency are enacted to express the seriousness of a situation which is usually attached to funding resources that are earmarked to addressing the emergency. The current pandemic is one that has had federal funds dedicated for which the city was eligible to receive. Declarations of emergency are often not lifted but put in place to communicate the city's position and create eligibility for funding.

Unfortunately, during times such as these, individuals try to take advantage of folks. With a lot of people working from home and relying on computers and checking updates on the situation, please be careful what you are clicking and opening. Phishing emails pertaining to the virus look very real and even appear to come from the Center for Disease Control. If you did not sign up for alerts, do not open these emails.
Also, do not download the Johns Hopkins virus update map from any location other than the real John Hopkins website as it has been cloned and is being used to infect systems with malware.
Please also be diligent in researching any group or organization that you are planning to give money to to help a various cause.
Feel free to reach out to our Police Department if you have questions or have fallen victim to a scam.
