Hudson Has Multiple Confirmed Coronavirus Cases

HUDSON, OH (March 29, 2020) – While the Summit County Health Commissioner is not releasing details about local residents who have COVID-19, including their city of residence, we do know that like other cities in the county, Hudson has multiple confirmed cases of coronavirus. We have no reported deaths at this time.

According to Summit County Health Commissioner Donna Skoda in an Akron Beacon Journal article explaining why the county doesn’t release this information, “COVID-19 is everywhere. It doesn’t matter if it’s Cuyahoga Falls or Barberton …You need to act like COVID-19 is at your doorstep. You need to act like ... everybody you’ve ever come in contact with is exposed and potentially a carrier.”

The bottom line is, that like other cities, Hudson has cases of COVID-19. According to the Ohio Department of Health, all cities should anticipate case numbers possibly doubling every four to six days.

We appreciate all Hudson citizens and businesses who are following the state and federal guidelines to help slow the spread of COVID-19. It’s important that Hudson residents stay at home, keep a six-foot distance from others, wash your hands often, clean surfaces that are touched, and avoid gatherings of more than 10 people.

While most are following the restrictions, there are a few who for whatever reason continue to operate as if COVID-19 is not a concern.  We’ve come across parties with large numbers of people gathering. We’ve closed playgrounds with caution tape, but individuals are removing the tape to let children play. The virus can live on plastic, wood, and metal surfaces for a long time, making playground equipment ripe for transmitting the coronavirus.

Getting outside is important during this quarantine period, but that has led to an influx of people at our parks. If you’re using our parks, be considerate of others and help everyone keep a safe distance so we all can enjoy the outdoors while minimizing the risk of contracting COVID-19.

Coronavirus has upended our daily lives and living under these new restrictions is challenging. As Ohio Governor Mike DeWine recently said, “I don’t want anyone to be alarmed, but I also want everyone to understand what we face.” Stopping the spread and flattening the curve is critical to help us weather this storm. We are all in this together. For more information, visit the following sites:
