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!

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.

What a wonderful day for this year’s Annual Ward 3 Picnic in the Park that is Today from 1-3pm! Just a few quick items to update you on this Labor Day Weekend.


4th Annual Ward 3 Picnic in the Park is TODAY

In the case of rain the event will be held inside the community room at city hall. No RSVP is needed.

For more information please contact me by email at ward3@northroyalton.org or by phone at 440-785-4240. Click Here to watch the Ward 3 Picnic in the Park Preview Video to learn more about all the fun.


Joe Keider Update
As you know Today’s Annual Ward 3 Picnic in the Park Charity it is supporting this year is Ward 3 resident Joe Keider’s Medical Recovery Fund. Many of you might not be aware that Joe was hoping to be there today given the progress he was making being home. However, on Thursday of this week he suddenly had stroke was flown this from UH Parma by helicopter back to Metro Health Hospital. Joe while at Metro suffered another stroke and blood clots including in his brain. They lifeflighted him but to the Cleveland Clinic. He needed to have a blood clot filter installed. And put on a blood thinner to break up any remaining clots. Yesterday morning he had surgery  at 2:30am. The filter is now in place. This filter is preventative. It is in place to stop clots traveling from his legs to his lungs. Then after that the doctors needed to decide when they can start using blood thinner medications to break up the clots in his lung. They want to wait as long as possible due to his stroke condition. If they start too soon there is a great risk he can start to bleed in his brain. But if they wait too long there is a great risk another clot can travel to his brain and cause another stroke. Later in day yesterday they decided right now the course of action is to wait for the brain to heal before treating the blood clots in his lung. This could take up to 10 days. But its complicated. If the clots in his lung travel to his brain he can have another stroke. It the clots in his lung put stress on his heart he can have massive damage to his heart. His teams are closely monitoring his heart for any stress, as well as his vitals. In his current state if nothing else happens to Joe, the best possible scenario would be that his brain heals, they treat the clots in his lungs, and he is able to be discharged from ICU. He would then be back at Metro rehab on the stroke floor to regain his speech and mobility that has been compromised due to the stoke. He is in a real life threatening situation that is complicated due to both the stroke he had yesterday and the current blood clots in his lung. Many of you have asked about update you can follow a Facebook blog the family has to check in how he is doing by Clicking Here. Besides any support you can provide in donations today the picnic will help. If you can’t make it today you can donate online by Clicking Here for his GoFundMe. If your a person of faith like me please pray for this young man that he pulls through. Special thank you to Father Estok, St. Albert the Great Church, Journey Church, and all those other members of our faith based community praying for Joe! The family wants me to pass along they appreciate and their son truly needs all the prayers he can get. Many of you have asked me yesterday what specific needs beyond prayer does Joe Keider and his family need. They still in need of many things when he returns home, as his family has taken on the responsibility of Joe’s Rehabilitation the party that injured Joe is not taking the responsibility they should for what they have done. A vehicle is top on the list, wheel chair accessible as he will have many ongoing follow up visits, estimated $60,000.00 a shower chair on wheels, $3500.00 a tilt table ,used to allow joe to stand and be weight bearing yet supportive, $2500.00, ultrasound machine $7500.00 for ongoing blood clot detection. Many miscellaneous medical supplies. If you or a business you work for or own have additional resources please contact me directly at ward3@northroyalton.org or call me at 440-785-4240 and I can get you in touch with the family. I am really trying to help this family and also exploring ways to prevent other families from being put through this. Thank you everyone for all the prayers and once again reminding me what a great place Ward 3 and North Royalton is! #JoJoStrong
