Concerts Have Been Suspended Until Further Notice

The City of Mentor regrets to announce changes to its summer schedule of events due to a recent sustained rise in the number of positive COVID-19 cases in Lake County and surrounding counties.

The Mentor Rocks concert series is suspended until further notice.  Although the risk of transmission at this outdoor event is very low, it is the joint determination of the City and the Lake County General Health District to practice caution while health indicators continue to be monitored.  The General Health District confirms that no positive cases have been associated with the concert series.

Additionally, the Mentor CityFest celebration scheduled for August 21st-22nd is cancelled.  We are not confident that the challenge of insuring proper social distancing and sanitary conditions at a festival event with high-contact activities can be met.

The City would like to thank our sponsors, volunteers, vendors, employees, and most of all, our attendees for your continued support in making these events successful.  We look forward to welcoming everyone back when community celebration is the only focus.

The City’s approach to the delivery of services remains to work within state guidelines in cooperation with and under the review of local health officials.  Living with this coronavirus will continue to require communities to find the balance between acceptable risk and quality activities, and to adapt as situations and conditions require for the good of public health.

Among populous counties in Ohio, Lake County remains among those with the lowest numbers of cases per capita or deaths from COVID-19.
