Scam Alert

Scammers are contacting people claiming to be tracing COVID-19 contacts. While legitimate health agencies, including the Cuyahoga County Board of Health and the Cleveland Department of Public Health, are calling people to complete contact tracing, they will never ask for your Social Security or bank account information.

Do not click on links or respond to texts saying you have been exposed to COVID-19. Please report suspicious calls or texts to http://ConsumerAffairs.CuyahogaCounty.US or call 216-443-SCAM.

Job Openings

Lt. Governor Husted announced that the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation has developed a website specifically geared toward matching essential businesses with Ohioans who are able and willing to work as an essential employee during the COVID-19 crisis.
 
Both essential businesses and current job seekers can visit Coronavirus.Ohio.Gov/JobSearch to post and search.
 
“If you are an employer who performs a critical service, please go to Coronavirus.Ohio.gov/JobSearch to post your open positions so we can help you fill them,” said Lt. Governor Jon Husted. “If you are a person who can work, please know that there are many who need you to help keep essential services running and we encourage you to do so, even if its only part time.”
 
The site features a highly-streamlined interface with only two main links – one for essential businesses, and one for job seekers. Applicants can search through jobs in their area, their region, and the entire state.

A Message to the Community

March 26, 2020
To the Strongsville Community:

COVID-19 continues to evolve and wreak havoc on our daily lives.  The federal and state governments have taken unprecedented steps to protect their citizens by closing schools, bars and restaurants, and other businesses.  These steps are being taken to slow the spread of the virus in order to minimize the impact on all Americans and the healthcare community.  Last week, President Trump and the White House Coronavirus Task Force released a document, “15 Days to Slow the Spread”.
The key takeaways from these guidelines are:

  • Listen and follow state and local authorities
  • If you or anyone in your family feel sick, stay home and contact your healthcare provider
  • If anyone in your household has tested positive for COVID-19 stay home and contact your healthcare provider
  • If you are an older person, stay home and away from other people
  • If you have a serious underlying medical condition you can be at increased risk, stay home and away from other people

The situation is changing by the day.  The amount of information can be overwhelming.  Please refer to credible sources like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Ohio Department of Health, and Cuyahoga County Board of Health.  The City Administration continues to monitor the situation and all the information.  We are complying with all the federal and state mandates and recommendations.  With the exception of the Recreation and Senior Center, all city services remain open and are operating on adjusted hours.  However, contingency plans are being made to help maintain essential services should additional mandates be handed down or the virus significantly impacts the community.

Public safety has been, and will always remain, the top priority for this Administration.  Please rest assured the City of Strongsville is doing everything we can to deal with this crisis.  Everyone has a role to play in controlling and fighting this pandemic.  Personal protective equipment and medical resources are limited so we need to conserve and allocate appropriately.  EMS should only be summoned for emergency service.  The goal is to reserve resources and transport individuals to the hospital emergency department that need more extensive care.  We are asking residents to manage their flu-like symptoms at home by self-quarantining, calling their healthcare provider, hydrating, getting plenty of rest, and use over-the-counter medications.  If your condition worsens, then call 9-1-1. 

Please click here to see how you can “Be Part of the Solution.”
Please maintain good personal hygiene.  Stay home and maintain social distancing to minimize potential exposure to the virus.  And please, help your neighbors, friends, and family, especially the elderly, those with underlying health conditions, and those with mobility issues that may have trouble getting necessary food, healthcare, and medications.

Safely yours,
John D. Draves, Fire Chief
Charles W. Goss, Director of Public Safety
Thomas P. Perciak, Mayor
