COVID-19 Update: December 23, 2020

To the Residents of the Village of Lagrange:

Lately, the updates I have been giving have been pretty depressing, but I am happy to report that things are looking up. We went from thirty-one COVID-19 cases two weeks ago to fifteen last week to nine this week. We have also gone down to red level three, instead of purple level four, in the county as their numbers continue to slowly go down. I hope these numbers continue to drop as the vaccine is also being given at this time to many front-line workers. They were given to Keystone Pointe staff and residents this Monday and I hope this helps our elderly population as well. I was just given permission to give everyone some very good news, Keystone Pointe tested one hundred and five staff members and residents Monday and the results came back with no positives. I believe the hard work these people do on the front lines is making a huge difference in peoples lives. Great job to everyone at Keystone Pointe!!!!!!! Please keep these people in your thoughts and prayers.

I would like to give a shout out to the Durham Ridge homeowners association, the Lagrange Fire Department, the Lagrange Police Department, Village workers and everyone else involved with Santa visiting the community by firetruck. Not only was this great for the kids but it brought in much needed food for the Lagrange Lions Second Harvest Food bank and toys for the Keystone Girls’ Softball team. Also, a big shout out for everyone who has donated food and toys for people in need!!!!!!

On a different note, I would also like to thank the local businesses on the square for adopting a waste container on the square. During the summer they watered plants for the Village that were put there and then they took it one step farther by decorating them for Christmas. They look great and I hope this continues and becomes a tradition along with Santa on the firetruck!!!!

I would like to end this update by wishing everyone a safe and Merry Christmas along with a prosperous New Year!!!! Please continue to practice social distancing when appropriate, you have all been doing a great job!!!

December Council Meeting: December 17th, 2020

COVID-19 Update: November 29, 2020

To the Residents of the Village of Lagrange:

The last three weeks have been the worst we have seen as we have been upgraded to Purple in Lorain County. There have been a little over forty cases total with unfortunately several deaths. The majority of the cases and the deaths have been at Keystone Pointe, with only a small number in the Village. The cases at Keystone Pointe involve staff also and not just residents. Please keep everyone at Keystone Pointe in your thoughts and prayers as they continue to fight through this to make sure their residents receive the best care possible while working in an environment that for the most part, is as safe as they can make it. They have a COVID-19 unit where they can keep patients isolated but the staff must still take care of these people while in this unit. These front-line people deserve our respect and gratitude for continuing to do their job along with all other front-line people out there in hospitals, fire departments, EMS squads and police departments. Even our small police department has been hit and we have an officer on quarantine. Please continue to practice social distancing when necessary and wear a mask when appropriate.

Speaking of masks. I have seen some people in businesses without masks when it is clearly marked on the door that it is required. I know that some people out there do not want to wear masks and I somewhat understand, but when you walk in that business where it is posted you are putting that business in jeopardy, they could be subjected to fines or the loss of there license. If you don’t want to wear the mask, don’t enter those businesses.

We have a tradition in Lagrange of having Christmas on the Square. After speaking with people from The KEEP organization and the school, we have made the decision not to have it. Since moving to Purple in Lorain County, I don’t feel it would be safe, especially when we are not to have a gathering of more than ten people. I know the Alumni Band along with the school choirs will be saddened but we hope we can have a spring concert at the Village Hall next year to fill the void. I thought Christmas on the Square would have been good for the children considering what they have been through. Hopefully it will be back next year.

Stay safe out there and act responsibly and we will get through this together.
