“While the holidays are always an important time to come together with your loved ones and family, it's absolutely imperative that we do so safely,” said Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan. “The last thing anyone wants for Christmas is COVID-19. Cases are rising rapidly and our hospital systems and healthcare workers are bearing the brunt of this new onset of hospitalizations. I would urge each of you to stay safe this holiday season. Stay home if you have symptoms and get vaccinated if you haven't already. I wish you and your family a joyous and safe holiday season and a happy, healthy New Year.”
