“The city’s top priority is the safety and well-being of its residents,” said Mayor Tom Mackin. “We are taking the governor’s mandated order to stay at home very seriously. He has declared all public playgrounds closed during this public health emergency, and we are following this order. By closing the playgrounds and all park recreation courts and equipment, the city is ensuring steps are being taken to minimize the spread of the coronavirus. We appreciate everyone's cooperation and patience as we work together to keep each other safe.”

Perrysburg Fire Chief Rudy Ruiz and Police Chief Patrick Jones spoke last week to the Messenger Journal about how things have changed for them since the advent of the coronavirus threat. Chief Ruiz, Fire Division–We are stepping up our personal protective equipment gear to include eye protection and N95 masks (a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and efficient filtration of airborne particles) worn by our personnel for all patients we respond to.
In the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, Way Public Library stands as a beacon of hope and optimism in an uncertain time. “All of us are being significantly affected by the worldwide pandemic,” said Director Janel Haas. “But how can we bring a community together when being together in person is not an option? The beautiful flags in our windows are our way of symbolizing the strength and determination of all Ohioans. We are strong. We are resilient. We will get through this together. May they be a beacon of hope and optimism to all who see them. We thank the Perrysburg American Legion Post #28 for loaning us the flags.”
