Muskingum County Sheriff's Office

Matthew J. Lutz, Sheriff

luly 22,2O2O

The Muskingum County Sheriff's Office remains committed to upholding the Oath of Office to
fully support the U.S. Constitution, the Constitution of the state of Ohio and Ohio laws.
Governor Mike DeWine has issued a mask mandate for the state of Ohio. The Sheriff's Office
strongly encourages its residents to use masks to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and hopefully
prevent another stay-at-home order.

We do not have the resources to proactively seek out those not in compliance with this order
or to field calls through our dispatch center pertaining to this order. The Health Department is
actively working on a reporting system for those that believe they or others are at risk. They
want to investigate the concerns and recommend the best action steps to address the health
and safety of all. We continue to rely on our local experts at the Health Department and
through the Ohio Department of Health who always have the health and safety of our residents
as their top priority.

We have supported the health department, Genesis hospital and our citizens throughout this
pandemic. We realize that our county has had a very big surge over the last 30 days and we
want to help protect our community as much as we can.
As always, your Sheriff's Office will always support making Muskingum County a safe place to
live, work and raise a family.
