The Village of Mariemont is committed to doing everything possible to help keep our residents and our visitors as safe and healthy as possible while we deal with the COVID-19 situation.

Currently the village offices are open normal hours and our employees stand ready to help you in any way possible. However, we do urge people to refrain from coming into the office if your business can be handled by way of a phone call or by computer. This will help to minimize the personal contact and help to keep our staff healthy so that they are available to assist you with any needs that may arise.

Our Police and Fire personnel will continue to be staffed 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. We ask that if you call for assistance from YOUR police department that if possible you can meet the officer(s) outside your residence to help to prevent close indoor contact. We also realize that every situation will not allow for an outdoor contact, and we fully understand that.

YOUR Fire Department / Paramedic personnel will be fully staffed and will place a mask on each patient (when appropriate) to help keep both our personnel, and the patient as safe as possible.

The village will continue to asses the situation on a daily basis and will do our best to keep you informed of any further changes in the operations. However, the safety services personnel will continue its 24 hours a day / 7 day a week service to the village without any changes in the operations.

Please practice social distancing, stay home if you are sick, and WASH YOUR HANDS frequently with soap and water (for 20 seconds or more).

It is our honor to serve and protect you and your family. We will continue to go the extra mile in helping us all to get through this, and together we will.

The Village of Mariemont is currently following the development as well as the plans of prevention of the Novel Coronavirus Outbreak (2019-nCoV).

We are following the recommendations of the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) and the Hamilton County Public Health.  We want to offer the following information to our residents to better help them to keep their families healthy.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-2019) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The outbreak first started in China, but bases have been identified in a growing number of other areas, including the United States.

Patients with COVID-19 have had mild to severe respiratory illness.

  • Data suggests that symptoms may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19.
  • Symptoms can include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, and shortness of breath.
  • The virus causing COVID-19 is called SARS-Cov-2.  It is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person via respiratory droplets that are produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes and can land in the mouths, noses, or possibly be inhaled into the lungs of people who are nearby.
    Close contact may include:
    • Being within approximately 6 feet of an individual with COVID-19 for a prolonged period of time
    • Having direct contact with body fluids (such as blood, phlegm, and respiratory droplets) from an individual with COVID-19.

To protect yourself from exposure (Taking these steps can help you stay healthy)

  • It's currently flu and respiratory disease season and CDC recommends getting a flu vaccine, taking everyday preventative actions to help stop the spread of germs, and taking flu antivirals if prescribed.
  • Cover your mouth while coughing and sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when sick.
  • Most importantly, WASH YOUR HANDS for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based sanitizer that is 60% alcohol.
  • Additionally, please contact a healthcare professional if you have traveled to an area with widespread COVID-19, have come in contact with anyone who has, develop flu-like symptoms such as a fever, cough, or shortness of breath.

COVID-19 Fatality Rate by AGE: (Hamilton County Public Health)

  • Death Rate = (number of death/number of cases) = probability of dying if infected by the virus (%).  This probability differs depending on the age group.  The percentage shown below does NOT represent in any way the share of death by age group.  Rather, it represents, for a person in a given group, the risk of dying if infected with COVID-19.
    80+ years old 14.8%
    70-79 yrs. old 8.0 %
    60-69 yrs. old 3.6 %
    50-59 yrs. old 1.3 %
    40-49 yrs. old 0.4 %
    30-39 yrs. old 0.2 %
    20-29 yrs. old 0.2 %
    10-19 yrs. old 0.2 %
    0-9 yrs. old No fatalities
