Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

March 15, 2020: Toledo-Lucas County Health Department Commissioner Eric Zgodzinski and Medical Director Dr. Jason Smith have provided the following updates relative to COVID - 19.  


  • We have created a source for all local COVID-19 information at lucascountyhealth.comYou can also find reliable information on the City of Toledo and Lucas County Official websites.
  • The Center for Disease Control has issued new guidance on mass gatherings and now recommends events with 50 or more people, should be canceled or rescheduled.  We discourage people from gathering in large crowds and encourage the use of social distancing. 
  • Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has stated that the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) has issued a Director’s Order closing all Ohio bars and restaurants to in-house patrons. Restaurants with take-out and delivery options will still be able to operate those services, even as their dining rooms are temporarily closed.  These establishments have been issued guidance from TLCHD encouraging social distancing, proper hand hygiene, covering cough/sneeze, and for those who feel sick, to please stay home.  For additional information on the restaurants and social distancing, visit the Health Departments webpage.
  • Effective immediately and until further notice, operations will be suspended for the Lucas County Outdoor Refreshment Areas, including Downtown Toledo, Sylvania, and the Village on Adams.
  • The Governor has also ordered the following areas to close: fitness centers/gyms, public recreation centers, bowling alleys, indoor water parks and trampoline parks, and movie theaters. Basically, all entertainment sports have been either cancelled or postponed.
  • Drive-thru COVID testing will be available for eligible Lucas County residents. If you are sick and feel you need to be tested, call either nurse hotline to be screened. If you meet the testing criteria you will then receive a call from the Health Department, providing further guidance.  Testing will only be performed on those who have been screened and scheduled. Those who have not been scheduled, will not be tested.  Testing will take place at the Toledo Botanical Gardens and those who are scheduled to use the Bancroft street entrance. 
  • Per Ohio Secretary of State Directive 2020-06, Election Day Voting  for March 17, 2020 has been postponed until June 2, 2020.

To be safe, call ahead to see if an event has been postponed or cancelled.
