By order of the County Commissioners, all county offices will be closed to the public effective March 17 until April 6, 2020. If you have essential business, please call our office at 330-339-2337 for scheduling options; otherwise, please utilize our locked drop box which will be checked regularly. Staff may also be reached by email; click here for the staff listing.

All programs through April 20 have been either canceled or postponed. We continue to accept 4-H club paperwork and enrollments, and our 4-H enrollment deadline remains at April 15. All forms can be submitted either by mail or our locked drop box. We are constantly being updated of the COVID-19 situation and are being fluid in our programming efforts. Please continue to check our website and our Facebook page as we will post updates as soon as they become available.

The following is the message from The Ohio State University:

The university is committed to doing everything possible to promote the safety of our community as we respond to the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19). One of the best ways to prevent the spread of viral illnesses is to minimize the circumstances in which individuals might interact and transmit the disease. The university has requested that employees telework, hold meetings virtually, or postpone them.

The safety of our community is our top priority. We realize that our COVID-19 policy guidelines will cause disruption, but the risk of not acting outweighs the inconvenience of these temporary measures. We will share updates as more information becomes available.
