Governor Mike DeWine and Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton have announced several measures intended to support the nationwide effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. These measures largely reflect directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the White House. Some state-level directives go even further than those issued at the federal level.
The City of Westlake has taken great care to adjust its operations to align with guidance on best practices as recommended by state, county and federal health professionals, as well as political leaders. The city is constantly evaluating those measures and whether more needs to be done to protect the safety and well-being of our community.
To help our residents and business owners, we have compiled a list of resources available to people in need of assistance during this difficult time. These resources include messages detailing the city’s actions pertaining to the containment effort and links to information, hosted on the city’s website and externally, about available through various public and private organizations. These resources include tax relief for businesses, low income loans and suspended insurance payment plans.
We will update this page with more information and useful links as they become available:
