Hancock and Putnam Counties are under Level 3 emergencies, which means you should only be on the roads if it is an emergency. You can be cited for driving under these conditions. Allen, Hardin, Wood, Henry, Wyandot and Seneca Counties are all under Level 2 emergencies, which means you should drive only if absolutely necessary.

Silgan Plastics in Ottawa has cancelled 1st shift operations.
