Alert: Community Energy Savings Day Today – August 27, 2020

Posted on: August 27th, 2020 No Comments

Help by Using Less Energy Between 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM

What is a Community Energy Savings Day?

Community Energy Savings Days are called when the demand for electricity is expected to be high. High electricity demand can occur during very hot or very cold weather, when homes and businesses are using high amounts of electricity at the same time.

When a Community Energy Savings Day is called, you can help decrease the demand by using less energy during peak demand times. If customers use less energy during times of peak demand, we can spread demand more evenly on the network, reduce the cost of providing energy and reduce the amount of greenhouse gases generated.

Following are a few ways to help reduce electricity usage during Community Energy Savings Days:

Step 1:    Sign up to receive alerts. You can receive alerts you can like/follow us on Facebook, Nextdoor, and Twitter or sign up for Piqua ALERT. We will make every attempt to send an alert prior to the Community Energy Savings Day.

Step 2:    When a Community Energy Savings Day is called, use less energy during the designated times.

  • In the summer, close your window blinds or drapes to block the sun’s heat and then raise your thermostat to 78 degrees or higher.
  • Shift household chores, like doing laundry or using the dishwasher, to non-peak hours.

Miami County Public Health COVID-19 Update

Posted on: August 21st, 2020 No Comments

 

 

Miami County – Miami County is currently at an Orange #2 COVID-19 Risk Level. This is due to Miami County meeting the criteria for 3 of the 7 Alert Indicators:

 

  • 50+ cases /100,000 population within last 2 weeks
  • More than 50% of new cases are from non-congregate care living
  • Sustained increase in Outpatient visits for COVID-19 symptoms over the past 5 days

 

This risk level indicates increased exposure and spread of COVID-19. It is advised that community members exercise a high degree of caution and follow all current health orders. Limit events over ten people and non-essential activities as much as possible.

For more information on the Public Health Advisory System visit: https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/covid-19/public-health-advisory-system/

Since Aug 7th, 2020, there have been 155 new COVID-19 cases, 20 new hospitalizations and 2 new deaths reported. This brings the total number of COVID-19 cases in Miami County to 974, with 792 confirmed cases and 182 probable cases, 102 hospitalizations and 40 deaths, with 756 presumed recovered.

In an effort to keep the community informed about the spread of COVID-19 in Miami County, MCPH is tracking positive cases in each zip code.

 

Schools are beginning to reopen and to help keep students & staff safe, MCPH encourages the community to practice safe social distancing and wear a face covering when you are out in public.  If you have symptoms, or if you live with someone with symptoms, stay home. Please do not attend school, social gatherings or events. These are the only steps we can take to slow the spread.

 

MCPH will continue to work keeping the community safe and informed as the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve in Miami County.
