As most of you are probably aware there have been three confirmed cases of the Coronavirus, in patients aged between 54-56, identified in Cuyahoga County.
Two of the patients had traveled to Egypt and one to Washington D.C. Several persons are self-quarantined after possible contact with infected individuals.
Lyndhurst City services, Community Partnership on Aging programs and the Lyndhurst Municipal Court continue to be open and available as normal.
We are monitoring this evolving situation closely and are taking precautions to ensure that your municipal facilities remain a safe environment for our residents and guests.
We will continue to provide updates as developments warrant.
Please be certain to be smart in your physical interactions with others, such as avoiding shaking hands, etc. Wash your hands frequently.
While concern and reasonable precautions are appropriate, let us avoid any unnecessary alarm, but with the knowledge that where there are some cases it is likely there will be many more.
Although it can be a serious illness, in the vast majority of cases, symptoms are not life threatening. That said, those in high risk groups, such as the elderly or those with respiratory ailments, should take extra care.
