Miamisburg announces actions related to coronavirus Print E-mail
Miamisburg, Ohio - March 13, 2020:  Developments have moved at a furious pace this week across the nation regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus).  City of Miamisburg officials have been monitoring these developments closely and have been receiving regular and timely updates from Public Health – Dayton and Montgomery County.  Those who live and work in Miamisburg should be aware of the following items of local interest:

Public events & programming Consistent with recommendations from state health authorities and actions taken by Gov. Mike DeWine, all special events scheduled in City parks and facilities and all Parks and Recreation Department programming are being cancelled for the next three weeks.  Decisions on activities beyond that time frame will be under review as developments occur.  Future information about those decisions will be communicated through local media, social media and the City website. 

Public facilities The Miamisburg Community Center at 305 E. Central Avenue will close to the public today at 5 pm. and remain closed for at least the next three weeks.  This closure is primarily to protect the senior adults that are frequent users of the facility.  According to health officials, seniors are considered to be a high-risk population for COVID-19.  The main Parks and Recreation Department information desk, which is located at the Community Center, will remain available by phone at (937) 866-8999.  Enhanced disinfecting measures have been enacted at other commonly visited public buildings, including the Miamisburg Civic Center, which houses the City administration, Police Department and Miamisburg Municipal Court.  The City’s public golf courses, PipeStone and Mound, are currently open and are being evaluated for continued operations.  

First responders Police and fire personnel utilize personal protective equipment on a regular basis for themselves and, when appropriate, victims or patients they may encounter.  This includes items such as masks, gloves, eye protection and face masks.  Officials are monitoring information about the virus and best practices on a daily basis.  Detailed safeguards have also been communicated Citywide to employees.  

“Our local government is engaged in this developing issue and ready to respond as it relates to the local community,” City Manager Keith Johnson said.  “In keeping with the current information we have regarding the virus, we believe it is important to cancel large public gatherings in the short term.”

“Otherwise, our local government will continue to operate in a manner that allows us to protect the health, safety and welfare of our employees and residents.  We want to encourage the public to refrain from panic, learn about the virus and take the personal hygiene and social distancing measures recommended by health care professionals.  We also want to commend the State of Ohio and Montgomery County agencies that are diligently working to keep the public informed.”

This issue remains fluid, and information is changing rapidly.  The Ohio Department of Health has opened a call center (1-833-4-ASK-ODH) to handle questions regarding COVID-19.  The line is staffed seven-days-a-week from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.  The Department of Health will also update its website daily with confirmed cases and other information.  The address is https://odh.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/odh/know-our-programs/Novel-Coronavirus/welcome/.
