The Tuscarawas County Commissioners have implemented actions to limit and prevent exposure to COVID-19 within the work environment. They will continue operations with reduced in house staff with the exception of recognized holidays.

Masks or face coverings are required while in the buildings for staff and visitors. Exceptions will be noted for health reasons, against documented industry best practices, prohibited for specific position by law or regulation, or a violation of a company’s safety policy.

They encourage all offices to permit their employee to work remotely whenever possible and rotate their in-house staff as well as limit person-to-person contact.

Employees are to continue to do self-assessments. Pay attention to these signs that you may have COVID-19: cough, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat or loss of taste or smell. Call your doctor or the health department if you feel you are developing these symptoms.

They are encouraging the public to consider doing business electronically, by drop box, etc. in order to limit entrance into the building. Review protocols you may have previously put in place to verify alternate drop off and departmental business procedures.

Continue to follow the CDC and health department COVID-19 protocols including hand washing, face coverings/masks, exposure guidelines and sanitization instructions. If you need the Buildings and Grounds Department to sanitize an office area after hours, contact the commissioner’s office. A temporary worker has been re-hired to sanitize high contact areas of the County Office Building and Courthouse during regular business hours.

Again, these safeguards and precautions are a means to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

Actions of the CDC, ODH and local health departments will be monitored for the most up to date recommendations and guidelines.
