City of Lakewood: Coronavirus/COVID-19 Response Update

April 24, 2020

The City of Lakewood continues to adjust in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

“Public health and safety are my top priorities,” said Mayor George. “I am encouraged by the progress we are making in Ohio to flatten the curve. However, I have also seen the number of COVID-19 cases in Lakewood steadily increase each week in data released by the Cuyahoga County Board of Health. We live in the most densely populated community in Ohio. That makes Lakewood exceptional and, as such, we must take exceptional steps to protect ourselves. I am taking every precaution possible to protect the citizens of Lakewood from COVID-19. I recognize the costs to our community and I am still resolved that this is the right course for us to protect our own health and our neighbors’.”
