Dayton & Montgomery County Public Health talked with the Ohio Department of Health to decide how lawn care businesses should operate during the stay-at-home order moving forward.
If the businesses abide by the physical distancing and disinfecting requirements implemented in the stay-at-home order then they may continue to operate, said Dayton & Montgomery County Public Health in a release.
The following services are permitted to continue according to public health:
- Mow commercial and residential properties
- However, businesses should refrain from landscaping services of residential properties that are considered non-essential such as for beautification purposes
- Landscaping services that are for the safety and sanitation of properties, for example insect control, are also allowed
Dayton & Montgomery County Public Health say they will be randomly inspecting the business practices of local lawn care companies to ensure they are following all the requirements.
