APRIL 27, 2020 COMMUNITY UPDATE

STATE ANNOUNCES RESPONSIBLE RESTART OHIO

The Village of Johnstown will follow the guidelines and policies enacted by Governor DeWine and Health Commissioner Acton. At this time, we have not issued any orders pursuant to our Village Emergency Declaration. We do not believe we will have to issue Village-specific policies based on current information. 

Today, April 27, 2020, Governor DeWine announced the opening of certain businesses. The schedule is as follows:

Businesses like salons, gyms and restaurants will have to wait to see how the first reopenings go.

The State will require those who are opening – and those who already have been open – to follow strict guidelines on how to reopen. You can find all details about these announcements at https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/covid-19/responsible-restart-ohio/

ARBOR CONTEST WINNER ANNOUNCED

Happy Arbor Day! Though we were not able to celebrate the way we hoped, there are still many ways for you to celebrate trees today. Plant a tree or go on a walk and try to identify some of the many beautiful trees in our community. The Village of Johnstown celebrated the holiday with Kenzie, age 9. She is the winner of our Arbor Day poster contest and she did a great job! Thank you Kenzie and all of our contest participants for celebrating trees with us!

THE WORKS AUGMENTED-REALITY MASTODON LAUNCHED

For a limited time, The Works is providing access to a new prehistoric exhibit piece! Licking County’s Burning Tree Mastodon is now available as a 3D augmented-reality experience. As a gift from Cyanna Education Services & powered by the technology of Origami Made, this piece of interactive history enables any history buff, tech enthusiast, student, or visitor of The Works to experience a 3D American Mastodon on their smartphone or iPad, anywhere in the world.

It’s easy! Simply scan the QR code with your phone’s camera to load the 3D Mastodon on your smart device. From there, you can rotate the Mastodon to take a 360° view of what the Mastodon may have looked like over 11,000 years ago. On your smart device, click the 3D-cube in the bottom right to place the model into your own environment– allowing you to scale the Mastodon big or small, and walk around the 10-foot-tall, 10,000-pound beast as if it were right beside you! Cyanna Education Services and Origami Made are proud to donate this project to The Works and are committed to furthering engaging, interactive education for students of all walks of life. So what are you waiting for? Give it a try and share your images with us using #attheworks!
