Covid Update: October 28, 2020

To the Residents of the Village of Lagrange:

In my last update I gave you a total count of seventeen, we are now up to twenty-two. I do not know who these people are but I do know and have been given permission to tell you that eight of them are at Keystone Pointe Nursing Home. They have set up a Covid unit and they are in quarantine. Basically, this means we have two more cases in the Village and I am sure they are in quarantine also. Unfortunately, someone went into the Nursing Home that was a carrier and these people were infected. I know also that Keystone Pointe has done a great job dealing with this pandemic but all it takes is one person to spread this virus no matter how hard you try not to. I would ask everyone to keep them in your thoughts and prayers and I am sure we all wish them a speedy recovery. Please continue to practice social distancing and wear a mask when appropriate, also the washing of your hands is very important to keep this virus in check along with the use of hand sanitizer. I have also been advised that we will stay in the red through this week and we will have to see what happens next week.

I have been asked again about Halloween and it is still scheduled for October 31 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Please practice social distancing when possible and if you don’t feel comfortable participating then you should stay at home. If you want children to come to your home please leave the front porch light on.

Hoping you all stay safe!

Covid Update: October 20, 2020

To the Residents of the Village of Lagrange:

I was hoping that this would be a boring update with no new numbers and then I was contacted by the Lorain County Public Health Department. I have been told that since the last update a little over a week ago we have gained three cases. This brings our total up to seventeen cases and the Public Health Department has told me we now have enough to do some statistical analysis to see if there are any trends going on in our Village. I was also advised that there is a possibility we could go to red Thursday in the county. This is not because of Lagrange it is because of overall numbers in the county. We have done very well in Lagrange and I hope these low numbers continue. Please continue to practice social distancing and the wearing of a mask when appropriate and or required.

I have seen many comments on the Village Facebook page after my updates about other cases and people hearing things about schools in the area. I am only given information on residents in the Village of Lagrange, even if someone works here but lives in another city, that case is attached to that city not Lagrange. I am never given any other information on the person because of HIPAA rules and I will only report confirmed cases from the Lorain County Public Health Department because these are factual. When I give an update, I want you to know that these are facts I am reporting confirmed by the Health Department. I will also let you know when the statistical analysis is done and what it showed if anything, you could also check the Health Department site because it should be posted there also.

If cases are reported in the Keystone Schools, it is the responsibility of the Superintendent to notify those affected.

There have also been questions about the date for Halloween. There was a site that listed it on October 25 by mistake, it is always on October 31 in the Village.

Thank you for your cooperation through this pandemic we will get through it together.

Stay Safe!

Village Update: September 20, 2020

To the Residents of the Village of Lagrange:

I would like to start this update with an apology. My life the last couple of weeks has been a blur losing two family members and I should have already put out this update. I would also like to thank everyone for the wonderful thoughts and prayers sent to my family during this time of grievance, they were very much appreciated.

In the last three weeks we have had three cases and so everyone understands these are cases that are confirmed by the Lorain County Health Department. If someone works in the Village but lives out of the Village, they are not counted against us. I was told there were a couple at the school before school started but they did not all live in the Village so not all were counted. This brings our total to fourteen which I believe is amazing when you consider our population to be approximately twenty-four hundred. We were in the yellow designation for a short period but have now moved back to orange because of a spike on hospital and emergency room visits. Please continue to do your part with social distancing and the wearing of a mask when appropriate so we can keep our Village safe.

I have been asked a lot about Halloween and it is scheduled for October 31 as usual and along with this update included are recommendations from the Health Department to guide us through a safe Halloween. I would encourage you that if you do not feel comfortable participating this year please stay home and turn your porch light off. If you are inclined to participate please do so and follow the guidelines sent out by the Health Department and have your porch light on to let the children know to come to your house for a treat.

I have also been asked many times what the new buildings on the end of Opportunity Way are, these two facilities were built to handle severely disabled people who need round the clock care. These individuals live at these facilities full time and need constant care.

I hope these updates bring everyone up to date and I will continue to keep you informed as I am informed with any new numbers or information.

Stay safe
