Covid Update: Other News, October 28, 2021

To the Residents of the Village of Lagrange

It has been a couple of weeks since the last update so I feel it is time to give another. Keep in mind that all the info given here is from the Lorain County Health Department itself and as accurate as possible. Our numbers now are given out by zip code so it includes the Township numbers also. The reason for this is because our numbers have come down so low, they are combined with the Township. Total population for the Village and Township combined is sixty-six hundred. In the last week or seven-day period there were seventeen cases reported in this area. That is below three percent which is wonderful but obviously zero percent would be better. Also, the vaccination rate for this zip code is at sixty-two percent and growing. I will continue to monitor this number also. Please continue to do what you are doing and feel comfortable with and these numbers should come down even more.

I also want to give a huge shout out to Montrose Kia. They put together the Montrose KIA Cares Initiative which involves contacting cities and Villages to invite their First Responders out to lunch to thank them for their service. This was done on October nineteenth at Michelle’s Café and all Village and Township employees were invited along with the Lagrange Police Department, The Lagrange Township Fire Department and Lagrange Township EMS Squad. A special thank you to Council President, Gary Kincannon for putting this all together with Montrose KIA and Michelle’s Café because I was out of town at a conference. He handled this project for me and did a great job!! Obviously, all could not be there so those who could not attend were given a gift card for their lunch. Thank you to all the front-line workers and First Responders for all that you do!!!!

On a different note, as you all know Halloween is this Sunday from 6:00 to 7:30. After you are done trick or treating the Lagrange Fire Department will be serving cider and doughnuts at the Fire station for all. Please come and enjoy. The Lagrange Police Department will be out in full force to keep everyone safe and to all the little ones out there when you see a policeman on Halloween make sure you walk up and say “Trick or Treat” and you might just get that treat!!! Also, I would like to give a quick heads up to everyone that we have in the works a Christmas Parade coming on December twelfth in the afternoon. It will follow the same basic route as the senior parade and we will be collecting canned goods and other food items for the Lagrange Lions Second Harvest Food Bank. Afterwards the parade will end at the Village Hall where there will be crafts for the kids, entertainment and refreshments and hopefully a visit from Santa!!! I will be coming out with more information on this as I have it along with the parade route and exact times. That is all for now I will keep you updated as more information comes in and I hope it is all positive!!!

Stay safe!

First Positive Covida-19 in LaGrange Township

To the Residents of the Village of Lagrange:

I have kept you updated with all pertinent information as it has been given to me. I mentioned that I could get the call at anytime that there was a case of the virus known as Covid-19 in our area and that time has come. I was just informed that someone just outside the Village tested positive and is now in fourteen-day quarantine. This is close enough to home to know that we have to be more vigilante than ever to keep this contained and to not have it spread further. I am sure this person shopped and did business in the Village as we all do. Social distancing is even more important going forward to keep our community safe.

I received a call that people were gathered at one of the pavilions at the community park and when I got there they were just leaving. This is unacceptable and cannot happen. The pavilions at the park are closed along with the exercise equipment along the trails. It is impossible to keep these things sanitized properly and I hope you understand that I am not trying to make anyone’s life harder than it is right now I am only trying to keep everyone safe until this situation improves. We will continue to keep the walking trails open so that people can get out and exercise just be aware of your surroundings so that there is space between you and anyone else who is there.

On a positive note I would like to give a huge shout out to Mr. and Mrs. Ulupinar on Harvest Ct. for donating masks that they made for the police department and anyone else who would like one. These are the cloth style that have been recommended to be worn when you are out in public shopping or just walking. They donated over thirty of these and said they will give more if needed. If you call the Village at 355-5555 and ask for Mark Kay Gates at extension 1 or you can call my cell phone at 355-5309, we will make arrangements to meet you or get you one of these masks. It is something like this that makes me so proud to be part of this small but great community. We will get through this but we must continue to practice social distancing.

Hoping you continue to be safe,

Mayor Kim Strauss
