Summit County Council voted Thursday to join the rest of the state and go to the yellow risk level for COVID-19.

The decision takes effect Friday, just three weeks after the county lifted the Stay At Home Order put into place in March, which also ordered businesses, except essential ones, to close. 

When Summit County lifted that order on May first, people were allowed to move about the county and most businesses were allowed to reopen if they followed strict protocols to ensure the safety of employees and customers.
