OAQDA Update on the COVID-19 Emergency

The Ohio Air Quality Development Authority is continuing to monitor updates regarding COVID-19, and we are taking every precaution to prevent the spread of this virus as recommended by the CDC and the state of Ohio. Following the thoughtful leadership and guidance of Gov. Mike DeWine, our staff is currently working remotely to ensure we are doing our part to protect our employees and partners. OAQDA expects to telework through at least April 6. At that time, we will re-evaluate and make a decision about whether the timing needs to be modified based upon public health guidance.

A few notes and helpful resources on COVID-19:

  • Governor DeWine and Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton, M.D. MPH issued a "Stay at Home" order. The order went into effect beginning Monday, March 23, 2020, at 11:59 p.m., and was extended on Thursday, April 2, 2020, with the new order taking effect on Tuesday, April 7, 2020. The order will remain in effect until 11:59 p.m. on May 1, 2020, unless the order is rescinded or modified. To view the amended order, please click here.
