March 13th, 2020

Columbus, Ohio – March 13, 2020 – On March 12, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine issued an order prohibiting mass gatherings of 100 or more people in an effort to curb the spread of coronavirus.

Modcon Living has rescheduled its March 19 Grand Opening event in an effort to help protect the public at this time.

The Ohio Department of Health reported on March 12 that it’s believed that more than 100,000 people in Ohio are carrying the virus, with five Ohio cases confirmed.

Director of the Ohio Department of Health, Dr. Amy Acton is quoted as saying, ”Taking decisive action now will greatly slow down this disease and stop its trajectory.”

Modcon Living extends sincere thanks to the Columbus Chamber of Commerce and Columbus Landmarks for the close collaboration, and support in the planning and rescheduling of the event.

The Modcon Living leadership and executive board will continue to review opportunities to improve organizational practices and policies that align with government guidelines to further protect the public and the key constituents it serves.
