Below you'll find interviews we've done with local experts about how Ottawa county is handling the current situation, as well as what you can do to keep yourself, your family and your community safe. Keep listening to WGHN-FM 92.1 for continuous updates on how COVID-19 is affecting our community. Now is the time to listen to local radio more than ever.

During the stay-home order residents are required to stay at home except under certain circumstances. The order is in effect to contain the spread of COVID-19, as the disease does not always or immediately show symptoms in someone before they are transmitting it.
