On Thursday, April 16, Summit County announced the introduction of a Stabilization Working Group. This is the first step in the next phase of this COVID-19 emergency: the Stabilization Phase. This group, comprised of leaders from the County, local cities, business associations and non-profit organizations, anticipates that as we pass through the Urgent Phase of the emergency, businesses, organizations and commerce will be able to gradually and safely return to operations under specific conditions and guidelines. Public Health must continue to guide our conduct as a community in this phase. Operations that can be done safely while continuing to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus should be able to take place. To this end, Summit County has been working with some community representatives, neighboring counties, and the state to make this process as uniform and coordinated as possible.
This working group is looking for qualified individuals from the community to assist with the stabilization process by working directly with the County on establishing proposals for how economic sectors can return to work without spreading the COVID-19 virus. In order to be considered, the Working Group asks that interested representatives fill out an application.
The links below include a statement introducing this initiative, authored by the Stabilization Working Group, an open letter from Dr. Rich Bullough, Summit County Health Officer, and Tom Fisher, Summit County Manager, as well as a link to the online application form and a list of business sector descriptions.
Please share this information with your colleagues and come together to nominate your sector representative to apply. Those nominated representatives should apply before April 20, 2020.
