Warren, OH --- The Warren City Health District will hold a “Shots at the Shop” COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Downtown Grooming Lounge, 137 South Park Ave., Warren, OH on September 23, September 30, October 14, and October 21 from 10 am to 1 pm.

“Shots at the Shop” is a White house-backed partnership between the University of Maryland’s Center for Health Equity, Black Coalition Against COVID, National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and Shea Moisture, a beauty and personal care brand. The coalition recruited 1,000 Black-owned barbershop and hair salons nationwide as a means to promote informed decision making regarding the vaccine. Warren City Health District is proud that out of 1,000 barber and beauty shops chosen nationwide for this initiative, that one was chosen in our community. Downtown Grooming Lounge is co-owned by Lewis West and Michael Mitchell.

COVID-19 misinformation and vaccine hesitancy have spread throughout communities of color. This initiative provides shop owners with the tools they need to provide their customers with factual information.

$100 Visa gift cards will also be available to those receiving their first dose of vaccine at the clinic.

For more information, please call the Health District at 330.841.2596.

PRESS RELEASE

Subject: Halloween Guidance
Date Sent: October 4, 2021

Trumbull County continues to see an increase in daily COVID-19 case counts. Both Trumbull County Combined Health District and the Warren City Health District are seeing high case rates among persons 4 to 50 years of age.

To minimize spread of COVID-19 from one community to the next, TCCHD and WCHD are recommending all door-to-door Trick-or-Treating events take place Saturday October 30, 2021, from 5:00pm -7:00pm.

General Guidance/Recommended Best Practices

  • It is strongly recommended that Trumbull County residents exercise caution when deciding to participate in trick-or-treating and events that put them in close contact with people outside their households. To lower risk, consider safer, socially distant ways to celebrate, such as:
    • Holding a drive-through or drive-in trick-or-treat event, with children in costume and face coverings, staying in cars and collecting treats from individuals spaced at least 6 feet apart.
    • Holding drive-by costume or car-decorating contests with judges who are physically distanced.
    • Leaving treats in the mailboxes of friends and neighbors.
    • Decorating your home and hiding treats as an alternative to trick-or-treating.
    • Holding costume parties or pumpkin carving events or contests online, such as zoom or skype.
  • Non-vaccinated persons - Should not hold large in-person Halloween parties. If holding smaller parties, limit attendance to 10 or fewer people and hold the event in an outdoor area where social distancing is possible. Avoid activities, such as bobbing for apples, that foster the spread of infection.
  • Wear a face covering and stay 6 feet away from people who are not from your household, whether trick-or-treating, passing out treats, or attending attractions or events. Stay home if you are sick. (NOTE: Face coverings should never be placed on children younger than 2 or anyone who cannot easily remove them.)
  • Carry hand sanitizer and use it often, especially after coming into contact with frequently touched surfaces and before eating candy.
  • Select events/attractions that are held outdoors and allow attendees to stay in their cars (such as drive-through event with displays) or socially distance. Avoid events that involve being crowded in a small area or coming into contact with/being touched by others.
  • Consider the people in your household who may be at greater risk of complications if COVID-19 is brought into the home, such as those with certain health conditions, women who are pregnant, or older family members.

Recommendations for Parents/Guardians

  • If taking your children trick-or-treating, limit the number of houses you visit and ask your children to stay as far from treat-givers as possible. For small children, consider holding the bag for them.
  • Wipe off candy wrappers with sanitizing wipes when you arrive home. (NOTE: Never wipe unpackaged food with wipes.)
  • Allow children to eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid homemade treats made by strangers.
  • If your child is at greater risk of complications from COVID-19, contact your doctor before allowing participation in Halloween activities.

Recommendations for Community Members

  • Refrain from having children select their own treats from a bowl/common container or set up a hand-sanitizing station. Consider placing treats on porch steps or a table in the driveway with a sign asking children to take only one. Or use other creative ways to distribute treats, such as using a candy “slide” made of PVC pipe, or hanging treats from a wall or fence.

Recommendations for Event/Attraction Operators

  • Have hand sanitizer readily available to all participants.
  • Consider eliminating common seating areas or play areas where children and others might congregate. If seating is provided, keep it outdoors, separate benches/tables by at least 6 feet or use dividers, and sanitize between each use.
