The guiding principles of the Responsible RestartOhio plan are protecting the health of employees, customers, and their families, supporting community efforts to control the spread of COVID-19, and responsibly getting Ohio back to work. On May 4, 2020, general office environments may reopen if these businesses can meet mandatory safety requirements for customers and employees. The full Responsible RestartOhio plan for general office environments can be found at
To continue to work with our clients all while following social distancing guidelines, OhioMeansJobs Ottawa County has developed a new web page specified to virtual services, FAQs, and curbside pickup/dropoff for copying and printing services (coming soon).

Schedule an Appointment

Our services include one-on-one meetings with clients who need assistance with resumes, job searches, mock interviews & more. Clients can still contact us via phone or email however if it’s something specific and time consuming, we ask that you please schedule an appointment.

For those who prefer to have that face-to-face interaction, we use Zoom to communicate with clients. If you are not familiar with Zoom, please see below for instructions. 

Zoom Instructions

Before joining a Zoom meeting on a computer or mobile device, you can download the Zoom app from Zoom’s Download Center. Otherwise, you will be prompted to download and install Zoom when you click a join link. Each meeting has a unique 9, 10, or 11-digit number called a Meeting ID that will be required to join a Zoom meeting. Choose the step-by-step instructions (with pictures) for your download method of choice:

At this time, we are waiting to hear from County officials on when our building will open back up. When we do, new procedures will be put in place for clients who come into the building.

When our building opens back up, we are discouraging clients from coming into the OhioMeansJobs center. We want to continue to limit contact with others during this time therefore scheduling an appointment is highly encouraged.

Currently, our staff is working on a couple options involving the Computer Lab at the resource center. At this time, if you have a smartphone or can access a smartphone or computer from a family member, we would recommend that option.
