The Ohio Lake Erie Commission has postponed (for a date later to be determined) the quarterly meeting that was scheduled for Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at the University of Toledo’s Lake Erie Center.
In response to precautions related to the COVID-19 virus, on March 9, Governor Mike DeWine imposed travel restrictions on employees of state agencies, boards, and commissions (including the Ohio Lake Erie Commission) which required postponement of the Wednesday meeting.
The Ohio Lake Erie Commission was established for the purpose of preserving Lake Erie's natural resources, protecting the quality of its waters and ecosystem, and promoting economic development in the region.

Additional members include the directors of the state departments of Transportation, Health, Development Services, Agriculture, Natural Resources, and seven additional members of the public appointed by the governor.
