Ward 3 Quick Update: March 23, 2020

Ward 3 Resident,

On Sunday, March 22th, under the direction of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton, M.D., MPH issued a director’s order to require all Ohioans to stay in their homes to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 beginning TONIGHT at 11:59pm EDT on Monday, March 23, 2020 until 11:59pm on April 6, 2020. This order prohibits holding gatherings of any size and closes all nonessential businesses. It does NOT prohibit essential activities like going to the grocery store, receiving medical care, or taking your pet for a walk. Residents can return home from out of state and can leave the state. I have also implemented the North Royalton Ward 3 Neighborhood Buddy Program. See below for more information. It was reported today by the Governor that state-wide there are 442 confirmed case, 6 deaths, and 149 cases here in Cuyahoga County. This very serious and we must #StayHome to #FlattenTheCurve and end the community spread of COVID-19. We can get through this but we all must work together to fight this war on COVID-19!

North Royalton Ward 3 Neighborhood Buddy Program for COVID-19 Launched

Mission: Councilman Dan Langshaw launched on March 20, 2020 North Royalton Ward 3 Neighborhood Buddy Program, to establish a North Royalton Ward 3 “buddy” system in North Royalton, Ohio to ensure vulnerable and hard-to-reach community members stay connected to COVID-19 related news, food, services, and help keep a positive morale to get through the COVID-19 emergency safely.

How to get a Buddy?

North Royalton Ward 3 residents who are interested in having a buddy are to contact Ward 3 Councilman Dan Langshaw via email at ward3@northroyalton.org, or online at http://www.danlangshaw.com/contact or by phone at 440-785-4240. We especially want elderly residents, residents living alone, those with health conditions making them high risk to COVID-19, and just residents who want to have an extra neighbor to check in on them. (Note: Residents not living in Ward 3 who want a buddy will not be turned away).

How to be a Buddy Volunteer?
Any North Royalton Ward 3 residents who are interested in volunteering to be a buddy are to contact Ward 3 Councilman Dan Langshaw via email at ward3@northroyalton.org, or online at http://www.danlangshaw.com/contact or by phone at 440-785-4240. (Note: Residents not living in Ward 3 who want to be a buddy will not be turned away). Once you volunteer to become a buddy, then Councilman will pair the two buddies together. Every effort will be made to have folks in the same neighborhood paired up. Councilman Langshaw will make the initial introductions, provide a buddy program checklist, and then the buddies will determine the frequency/means of check ins. Due to serious safety concerns with COVID-19 it is strongly urged that buddy communications are done by phone, email, Facebook, video chat, and other means till deemed safe by proper state and local authorities.

How the Program Works?
How the North Royalton Ward 3 Neighborhood Buddy Program for the COVID-19 Emergency works. Buddies will contact each other on a daily basis or a frequency they both mutually agreed upon. The volunteer buddy will have an emergency contact of their buddy in case they are unable to be reached. The volunteer buddy when contacting their assigned buddy will go thru a basic checklist to ensure their buddy is ok and then can discuss anything they like to talk about as buddies. Due to serious safety concerns with COVID-19 it is strongly urged that buddy communications are done by phone, email, Facebook, video chat, and other means till deemed safe by proper state and local authorities. Once buddy volunteer makes contact with their assigned buddy they are to email Ward 3 Councilman Dan Langshaw at ward3@northroyalton.org a quick update on their buddy as follows: that they have made contact and if their buddy needs any assistance.

Note: This program is a voluntary neighborhood program established by North Royalton Ward 3 City Councilman Dan Langshaw on March 20, 2020 and is not affiliated with any specific group, organization, or part of the North Royalton City government. All those participating are expected to take all appropriate safety measures to not put their life or others at risk during the COVID-19 Emergency.

Stay Home, Look after each other, and Stay Safe!

Ward 3 Quick Update: March 20, 2020

Ward 3 Resident,

This COVID-19 emergency is something we ALL should take very seriously! This not business as usual! I have family, friends, and loves ones who are first-responders and medical professionals on the front-lines of this. I hear their stories daily. We MUST take this emergency seriously. Something we can all do is #StayHome as much as possible. If you must go out please use #SocialDistancing and other common-sense protective measures. Until you hear otherwise from health care officials, even if you have no symptoms to help #FlattenTheCurve of community spread of COVID-19. When looking back in history to past pandemics like the 1918 influenza pandemic the most severe pandemic in recent history. Like now they turned to proven tactics of isolation, quarantine, good personal hygiene, use of disinfectants, and limitations of public gatherings to help end the spread. I know all of you are on information overload at times. Me too! But also knowledge is power and it could even help save your life. I have been doing my best to keep up but things change on an hourly basis. So moving forward I will keep updating helpful information as a one-stop place for North Royalton Ward 3 COVID-19 Updates that include various information from all levels of government and I will focus more on adding things that residents have requested more information on like where to get carryout and etc.

Ward 3 Quick Update: March 16, 2020

Ward 3 Resident,

These are difficult times for all of us! Together we will all get through this ever-changing Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis our nation and the world are battling. Thank you to our brave doctors, nurses, and first-responders on the front lines of all of this! Having served in the United States Army I view this as battling a war against COVID-19. Again don’t panic but be prepared to adapt to more changes to your daily life for the next several weeks or more. These changes are being made to help save the lives of your family, neighbors, and friends. Call and check-in with your family members and neighbors to see how they are doing. It’s important for families to restrict travel right now. I’ve advised members of my own family not to travel. I suggest only going out if you absolutely need to. Community spread is the biggest concern at the moment. The Ohio Department of Health has a Call Center to answer questions related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The Call Center is open 7 days a week from 9:00am to 8:00pm and can be reached at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634). Call 911 or your healthcare provider right away if you believe that you have been exposed to COVID-19.

February 20, 2020 Statement from North Royalton Ward 3 Councilman Dan Langshaw on the Closing of Historic Carrie Cerino’s Ristorante & Party Center

Many of us in the community are heartbroken by the abrupt closing of Carrie Cerino’s Ristorante & Party Center after 57 years of business yesterday. Carrie Cerino’s has been a pillar of both great traditional family Italian cuisine and community life. Including my own life and family. I have so many great memories as a child of family celebrations and parties. My parents had made it a tradition to celebrate their anniversary every year with “mama noodles” and I too had taken their tradition with my own wife Marissa at Carrie Cerino’s where we would celebrate our milestones together.

Owner, Carmen Cerino‘s comments on Facebook stated that:

“headwinds facing many small businesses in today’s environment made it very difficult for Carrie Cerino’s to operate and compete.”

This is truly hard to stomach and serves as a wake up for our entire community since this makes now about the third restaurant/bar type of business to close its doors in North Royalton in 2020. I truly wish as a community leader and we as a city could have worked collaboratively to save this business and others. It’s becoming alarmingly clear the current way of business as usual of economic development needs to change in this city.

 I believe and will continue to advocate this year for City Council to get more actively engaged in the economic development process. While working with the City Administration, Chamber of Commerce, and business leaders, my goal is to help foster a more business friendly environment that will retain existing businesses, attract new ones, and encourage residents to buy local in North Royalton. I believe we can work together as a community so that we don’t see any more closures of family run businesses like Carrie Cerino’s.

For more information contact North Royalton Ward 3 Councilman Dan Langshaw at ward3@northroyalton.org or 440-785-4240.
