On November 16, 2020, Akron City Council passed legislation (Ordinance No. 336-2020) to prohibit large private gatherings and require face coverings at small private gatherings in the City of Akron, based on the recommendation of local public health officials and healthcare leaders. Section 1B states that no residential property owner or occupant shall permit more than 6 non-residents on the property they own or occupy at one time. Non-residents include any person who does not permanently reside at the property, including close family members who reside elsewhere. The ordinance is effective for 30 days.
Panelists Dr. Kathleen Tschantz Unroe and attorneys Al Schrader and Warner Mendenhall will address the status of the COVID-19 public health emergency that led to this legislation, highlights of Ordinance No. 336-2020, the goal of the ordinance, the use of civil penalties in this situation, and possible legal challenges.
