Undoubtably, it’s an unsettling time with the pandemic and the scary feeling of not knowing what is coming next. To all of our moms, to all of our readers, you are NOT ALONE! We are all feeling many of the same feelings, and have so many questions. Although we cannot provide you with many of the answers we all would like to know, we can do our best to continue providing you with the resources, latest up-to-date information, and activities to keep you and the kiddos busy (and sane!) during this uncertain time.
Now, more than ever, it is so important to support our local businesses, in whatever ways we can given the current climate and restrictions. If you know of a local business providing some kind of service that our readers should know about (whether it’s virtual healthcare, meal deliveries, etc ) please email us at [email protected] If we are missing something, please let us know and we’ll add it in here! Thank you so much to our City Mom Collective sister sites whose valuable articles have also been included in this guide.

FOR THE KIDS (EDUCATION, ACTIVITIES, & ENTERTAINMENT)
Having the kiddos at home for an unknown period of time can bring some anxiety and worry. How will we as parents keep them entertained for days on end?

OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES NEED YOU
While it is always a good idea to shop local, now is more important than ever. The COVID-19 pandemic will have a huge impact on local businesses, so as part of the Northwest Ohio community, we must find ways to show our local businesses that we support them.
