Our goal with this course of action is to limit the opportunity for exposure as well as maintaining a safe, healthy place for our participants, residents, and staff. The City of Avon will continue to monitor updates and information on COVID-19 from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Ohio Department of Health.
