"Like cities across the nation, Akron is in the midst of a state of emergency with ever-changing circumstances, due to the COVID-19 virus. Almost daily, the State of Ohio is taking aggressive measures to control the impact of this pandemic here in Ohio. As we move forward in the days ahead, I am asking every Akron citizen to change your daily behaviors in order to combat this pandemic, knowing that even more disruptions may occur in the days and weeks ahead. Please heed the warning of our local, state and federal health officials. Doing so is the ultimate socially generous act and the most selfless of community gestures. Your responsible actions now can help save lives. In this moment, we have a duty to our community and to each other – now, more than ever.” - Mayor Daniel Horrigan
