If you have watched TV or listened to the radio you have heard a lot of distressing news about the novel coronavirus also known as COVID-19. Having been confirmed in Cuyahoga County only adds to the stress and makes us susceptible to fear and misinformation. 
On Monday, the State of Ohio declared a state of emergency in response to the coronavirus cases. It is important to remember that although this sounds frightening, they did it out of an abundance of caution and allowing the county to get state help if the they need it. So far there have been only three reports of the virus in our State.

NAMI Lake County, OH will remain open and all classes, support groups and presentations will continue unless otherwise advised by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) or Ohio Department of Health (ODH). Please read below for what we are doing to keep our staff, volunteers and those we serve healthy. We ask that you monitor our Facebook and Website closely for any updates or changes to our programming.

The symptoms of the novel coronavirus are:
Mild to severe respiratory illness
Shortness of Breath

  We ask that everyone stay home if you are sick .
