Fairfield County has been declared a Level 3 (Red) Status in the Ohio Public Health Advisory System effective July 9, 2020 due to increased COVID-19 cases. The Governor and State Health Department have ordered masks to be worn in Level 3 (Red) or Level 4 (Purple) Status at any indoor location that is not a residence, and outdoors when social distancing is not possible.
Masks are mandatory in all Twp. facilities.
The Level 3 designation means there is very high exposure and spread of COVID-19 in the county. Fairfield County residents are encouraged to limit activities as much as possible and to follow all current health orders.
The order goes into effect at 6 p.m. Friday July 10, 2020 and will remain effective until Fairfield County is no longer designated at Level 3 in the Public Health Advisory System.
2020 Census Field Operations have resumed in Ohio. Operations field staff will be hand delivering census packets as part of the Update Leave operation. These are the forms delivered to areas where they do not receive mail at their home address (P.O. Box Delivery). The operation does not require person to person contact. Census field staff will have mask and gloves and will leave the questionnaire packet at the door or on the porch in a plastic bag. They will not knock on doors.
Currently, the planned completion date for data collection for the 2020 Census is July 31, 2020, but that date can and will be adjusted if necessary as the situation dictates in order to achieve a complete and accurate count.
It has never been easier to respond on your own, whether online, over the phone or by mail - all without having to meet a census taker. Learn more about these updates and ways to be counted here.
