Today, state Senator Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) announced that she has requested a meeting with Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) to discuss the safety protocols she would like to see in place before her staff can safely return to the Statehouse. The announcement comes after a number of Covid-19 cases among legislative staffers were reported in both chambers.
“I have been corresponding with President Obhof by email since deciding to have my staff work from home two weeks ago,” said Fedor. “The staff have proven throughout this pandemic that they can, and have, successfully served our constituents from home. This week, I created template documents outlining commonsense measures that should be taken in an office setting to protect against Covid-19. For example, the documents lay out a standard notification process, simple modifications in the building to mitigate spread, expectations of employees, and even signage. I sent the documents to President Obhof last night and am looking forward to discussing them with him next week. I want to take the politics out of the conversation to do what is right for our staff.”
