Warmer Weather, Gray Skies, and So Far No Coronavirus in Galion

Here it is Friday, March 20, 2020 and the air is warm and springlike outside - 66 degrees as I write this, to be precise. The sky's looking pretty gray and it's windy, but the warm weather is a mood booster (for me anyway) in spite of the gloomy skies.

Galion Coronavirus Update

Checking back in with an update on the two Galionites who were recently tested for Coronavirus.

The tests results for these two individuals came back negative, according to an article in the Bucyrus Telegraph Forum. This is such great news for the people involved and for the community, though realistically, the virus is likely to make an appearance in the Galion area sometime soon.

Precautions are still needed, in that we're still being asked to keep a safe distance from others, wash hands frequently and use hand sanitizer when soap and water aren't an option, and not touch our faces. (Good, common-sense advice for avoiding disease any time really.)

Recent Coronavirus Closings

Since my last update post, Ohio has placed a few more bans due to coronavirus, in hopes of stopping its spread - including hair salons, tattoo parlors, nail salons, and the BMV - except for CDL-related transactions.

The BMV closing for coronavirus was a surprise, because I haven't seen any updates about what people who need to renew driver's licenses, who need first-time permits and licenses, and those who need to get State IDs are supposed to do - or if affected drivers will be allowed to drive without being ticketed until the BMV reopens.

Galion Weekend Weather Forecast

So, as we head into what looks to be a dull weekend because pretty much everything is closed, I find myself glad I'm a writer because I have plenty to do - and wondering what everyone else is doing. It's pretty muddy from teh recent rain, so yard work would be challenging, though the weekend weather is predicted to be pleasant - a touch chilly with a high of 35 degrees Saturday and 46 degrees on Sunday, but no rain forecasted until Monday.

Comments are welcome if you want to chat about coronavirus, things to do, the weather, or anything else. The comments section is open below each post here on the Galionite website.

The Ides of March in Galion

Sorry (but not really sorry) for the Caesar-inspired title. I just realized how badly I had been ignoring this blog with no newsy posts since back during the Oktoberfest. 

Coronavirus News for Galionites
Coronavirus News for Galionites

So, a lot's going on in the world, and in Galion as of the Ides of March 2020. 

Coronavirus News: Pandemic Virus Visits Galion?

Coronavirus - there were two possible cases in Galion, announced by the city's Health Department on their Facebook page. I haven't seen any kind of update on the results of the tests - like many - I'm waiting to hear what the test results said. Hopefully, there will be an update tomorrow, with Monday being a business day - if I hear, I'll share it here on Galionite.

Schools Closed for Rest of March

School closings - This one also goes back to coronavirus. Governor DeWine announced Ohio schools are closed until at least the end of March, after tomorrow (Monday) - but he later said he thinks it's possible the schools are going to be closed for the remainder of the school year.

Bars and Restaurants Closed

This is another one that goes back to the pandemic virus known as coronavirus or COVID-19 - in fact - pretty much all the news lately is in one way or another linked to coronavirus. Better stock up on beer and wine... As of 9:00PM tonight, March 15, 2020, all restaurants and bars in Ohio are closing due to coronavirus. Only take-out and drive-through service is permitted. 

Is Coronavirus Political? Seriously?

So, there's a lot of craziness going on in the world, and a lot of people are trying to turn this virus into part of a political game, though there's no clear line as to which side is for or against .. what... I don't know... but, here's hoping that we, as Galionites, can rise above the pettiness of politics as we care for and protect those who are the most vulnerable among us. 

I'll keep updates coming as time allows - and I'll share information about those who are reaching out to help others during this challenging time.
