Coronavirus Crisis

Gov. announces parameters for returning to activity

Veterinary medicine “full speed ahead” on May 1

Gov. Mike DeWine today announced his general plans to begin reopening and expanding activities in Ohio. In his press conference this afternoon, he discussed a return to elective medical procedures and stated that veterinary medicine would be “full speed ahead,” effective this Friday, May 1.

To verify a complete understanding of all parameters, we need to review the language of the actual order, which was not yet available at press time. It is, however, our understanding that elective procedures—such as spay/neuter and routine dentals—are no longer restricted and can resume beginning Friday.

It is important to note that there are also general business parameters that are to be followed, including six feet distancing where possible, wearing masks when around fellow employees, health check-ins with employees, and frequent disinfecting.

While we know you may have a number of questions, please be aware that we are awaiting complete information before we can provide any additional details. We understand that more information will be posted sometime today on Ohio's coronavirus website. We will share more information tomorrow morning after we review and confirm the details.
