COVID-19 Update (March 12, 2020)

Posted on March 12, 2020

Dear Lakeside community,

The Lakeside Chautauqua Board of Directors and staff have been closely monitoring the status of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and following updates provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the State of Ohio, and our local health and tourism officials.

As a precautionary measure, we have cancelled next week’s Community Potluck on Thursday, March 19 – an event in partnership with Otterbein Senior Living. However, at this time, there are no plans to cancel or postpone events planned for April, May or the Chautauqua summer season.

The safety of our guests, residents and staff remains a top priority, and therefore, we will continue to monitor the situation as time progresses and make accommodations where appropriate. If changes occur, we will notify you on our official Facebook page, e-newsletter and website at

We recommend that anyone with questions or concerns about the virus follow the guidelines recommended by WHO and the CDC.


Daniel Dudley
Lakeside Chautauqua, Acting President & CFO/COO
