Ebola Update #3

October 16, 2014

From: Dr. Margo Erme, Medical Director

PIO: Donna Skoda, Assistant Health Commissioner

A Message for Parents Regarding Ebola

Akron, Ohio. At this time based on the information collected by Summit County Public
Health there is no known threat to the public’s health. Summit County Public Health is
not advocating for the closure of schools and the cancellation of events. However,
Summit County Public Health supports Akron Public Schools and their decision based
on their assessment of the situation.

Summit County Public Health has released a list of the top things parents need to know
about Ebola.

1. Your child is not at risk while attending school in Summit County
. A risk for
Ebola only comes when you come into close contact with a person suffering from
Ebola. The health care worker who passed through Summit County did not visit any
county schools.

2. Being near someone who is sick with Ebola doesn't mean you'll get infected.
disease isn't contagious like the flu or common cold. You have to be in contact with a
patient's body fluids or blood, and you have to have a break in your skin or have the
fluids touch your eyes, mouth or nose.

3. Ebola does not live long on surfaces or outside someone's body.
Soaps, detergents
and hand sanitizers are effective at killing the virus. Keeping your area clean and
washing your hands will help prevent infections.

4. You and your children are really only at risk if you have traveled to West
Africa, where Ebola is currently spreading.

5. There are currently no known cases of Ebola in Summit County or Ohio.
Ebola Update #2

October 16, 2014

Summit County Public Health and Summit County Emergency Management Agency are coordinating with all local law enforcement, fire, EMS, local hospitals, and government personnel to provide accurate and timely information. Attached is an information sheet on ebola. To date, no cases of ebola have been reported in Summit County. Summit County Public Health has set up an information line for citizens with concerns about ebola. The number for the information line is 330-926-3939.

Additional information and updates will be posted to the Summit County Public Health webpage.

Ebola Fact Sheet

From: Dr. Margo Erme, Medical Director

Ebola Update #1

Akron, Ohio. At this time based on the information collected by Summit County Public Health, there is no known threat to the public’s health and therefore no reason to close schools or cancel events at this time.

Secondly, Summit County Public Health has not identified any public events or large public gatherings attended by the affected health care worker in Summit County or any surrounding counties. For further information, Summit County Public Health has established an information line at 330-926-3939. This local Ebola information line will be staffed from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. until further notice.

Brandon James
Brandon James

Brandon James
of The College of Wooster was named to the D3football.com Team of the Week, presented by Scoutware, for his work on special teams this past Saturday at No. 11 Wabash College, the popular website announced on Tuesday.

James, a senior strong safety, blocked a field goal on Wabash's first drive of the second half, and later in the third quarter, took a direct snap during a successful fake punt and went 46 yards, breaking multiple tackles down the right side line, before being pulled down inside the five-yard line. On the next snap, Wooster scored its first touchdown of the game to pull within 28-9.
In addition to his standout play on special teams, James tied for the team lead in tackles with 12, including one for a loss.

The Fighting Scots, who lost to the nationally-ranked Little Giants 35-16, will try to bounce back this week when they host Allegheny College Saturday at 1 p.m.

Barberton's Riley Ries, Macy Kaisk commit to play softball at Cleveland State University

The Barberton City Schools would like to congratulate Riley Ries and Macy Kaisk on their signing with Cleveland State University Softball Program. Both Riley and Macy will continue their academic and softball careers for the Vikings of Cleveland State University.

Barberton seniors Riley Ries and Macy Kaisk have committed to continue their academic and athletic careers at Cleveland State University as members of the Vikings softball team. 

“Riley and Macy have played together since they were seven years old and are excited to continue their playing careers together for coach [Becky] Norris and Cleveland State,” said Barberton coach Steve Kaisk, who is also Macy’s father. 

Ries and Kaisk will both sign their national letter of intent in November. 

Ries, a catcher, is a 2014 All-Northeast Ohio and Honorable Mention All-Ohio selection. She also plays basketball. 

Kaisk, a pitcher, is also a 2014 All-Northeast Ohio and Honorable Mention All-Ohio selection. She also plays volleyball and basketball. 

Ries compiled a .529 batting average as a junior with six home runs, 29 runs batted in and just one strikeout. She also hit for the cycle in a game against Geneva. She plans to major in Sports Medicine. 

“Riley is undoubtedly one of the smartest players I have ever coached at the high school or travel ball level,” Kaisk said. “Her knowledge of the game and leadership skills put her in a class by herself. She is also one of the hardest working players I know.”

Kaisk posted a 9-2 record as a junior with one save, a 1.03 earned-run average, 83 strikeouts and eight walks. She also batted .333 with four home runs and 18 runs batted in. She plans to major in Accounting. 

“Macy is one of the toughest competitors in the circle,” Kaisk said. “She is what every coach would want in a pitcher. I have never seen her rattled no matter the situation.”
