Union County Guide for Businesses

In Union County, we are all working together to protect our communities. As the Union County Health Department and local businesses partner to keep employees and customers safe, here are some local tools for businesses.

What if A Case of COVID-19 is Identified in Workplace
The “Quick Reference Guide” is a one-page visual guide that quickly outlines what initial steps should be taken if a case of COVID-19 is identified in the workplace.

The “COVID-19 in the Workplace FAQ” is a more detailed 4-page document that answers many of the frequent questions employers have if an employee becomes ill with COVID-19.

Signs for Entry
Entry sign asking customers to visit another day if they are feeling ill is one of the best practices recommendations. Here are two possible options for entry signage you may want to use in your business.

Responsible RestartOhio Plan

As Governor DeWine restarted Ohio’s economy in May, Ohio established safety protocols to keep employees and customers safe. It is important for all of us to work together to follow these safety protocols so we can keep employees and customers safe and healthy while keeping our businesses open. Please go to the Responsible Restart Ohio page to view the safety protocols for each sector of Ohio’s economy. This site also contains the safety protocols for community activities such as sports and pools. In general, all businesses and community organizers need to ensure 1) daily symptom checks are implemented, 2) face coverings are worn by employees (unless an approved exception applies), 3) frequent handwashing, 4) social distancing is maintained, and 5) frequent cleaning and disinfecting.

Go to¬† coronavirus.ohio.gov/responsiblerestartohio for all the latest information on Ohio’s reopening plan.


Mass Gathering Limit Still in Effect
Ohio public health orders still prohibit mass gatherings of more than 10 people unless specifically exempted. In general, most community events of more than 10 people are prohibited (one exception of note are the county fairs). If you have questions about a specific gathering, please contact our office at 937-642-2053.
