CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OH — Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish issued the following statement:

“I am pleased that Mayor Bibb is issuing a mask advisory for the City of Cleveland, which will complement the County’s current mask advisory. The cold weather has pushed us all indoors and masks are critical when in enclosed spaces—they are an effective barrier against getting COVID.

“While it appears our COVID positivity numbers are going down right now, this is NOT the time to let up. We’ve seen how this virus can mutate and shift as it’s done for almost the past two years. I applaud Mayor Bibb for his dedication to keeping residents safe and businesses open and encourage everyone to continue practicing preventative measures—masking up, social distancing, and getting vaccinated.”
