    During a trip to Ohio on Sept. 17, U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia visited Great Oaks Career Campuses, which specializes in career and technical education for both high school students and adults. Over 30 career programs are available for high school students living in 36 area school districts. While there, Sec. Scalia participated in a roundtable discussion with local business leaders and educators regarding workforce development and economic growth.

    The Secretary had traveled to Cincinnati to discuss economic recovery, workplace safety, and the steps needed to develop a skilled, dynamic workforce. Secretary Scalia visited Consolidated Metals, where he met company leadership and employees and discussed the economic re-opening.

    Representatives from P&G, Nehemiah Manufacturing, Perfetti Van Melle, the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, JTM Food Group, KUTOL, and DPA Buying Group discussed the impact of COVID-19 on their business and on the region.

    “It was great to be back in Ohio and see the progress being made in safely re-opening our economy,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia. “I was pleased to visit Consolidated Metals Products and learn about the steps they’ve taken to provide jobs and bring Americans back to work. I would also like to thank Great Oaks for hosting a valuable conversation on business growth, safe workplaces, and equipping workers with the skills needed for good-paying, meaningful jobs.”

    The mission of the Department of Labor is to foster, promote, and develop the welfare of the wage earners, job seekers, and retirees of the United States; improve working conditions; advance opportunities for profitable employment; and assure work-related benefits and rights.

    Beginning Tuesday, September 8, parents or guardians and school staff should notify their school within 24 hours of receiving a positive test or a clinical diagnosis. Within 24 hours after receiving that notification, the school should notify other parents and guardians about that case in writing, providing as much information as possible without releasing protected health information. The school must also notify their local health department within 24 hours. 

    Beginning Tuesday, September 15, and each Tuesday thereafter, local health departments will report the number of newly reported and cumulative cases to the Ohio Department of Health. The Ohio Department of Health will publish this data by school or school district, including a breakdown by students and staff, each Thursday.

    "We understand there is a balance between privacy and transparency, and we do not intend for protected health information to be released in our effort to provide information to Ohioans so they can make the right decisions for their family," said Governor DeWine. "Please remember that if a school has positive cases among their students or staff, it does not mean the school did anything wrong. Schools cannot control spread in the community, so it is important to practice safety measures not only in the classroom but also when you’re out in the community."

    The order will also require each school district or school to identify a COVID-19 coordinator to facilitate the reporting of case information, and upon request, schools or buildings are required to provide the local health department a copy of their pandemic plan.
