Cuyahoga County has ordered “a stay-at-home advisory” that is now in effect as of Nov. 18 until Dec. 17.

From WJW Fox 8 News Cleveland:

According to the new legislation, people are only advised to leave their homes for the following reasons:

  • school
  • work
  • going to the grocery store
  • picking up food
  • medical care

Otherwise, officials are asking people to stay at home as much as possible.

Basically, as Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish puts it, “Just stay home.”

People are also recommended to not make any trips out of Ohio for the time being, and to “forgo having guests in their homes or residences during the upcoming holiday season.”

It is also recommended that any activity that is celebratory should not take place until the “spike” down dramatically.

This order comes as COVID-19 cases continue to soar at alarming rates with the City of Cleveland reporting 509 cases that came down earlier in the week.
