TSEP temporarily closing office in response to coronavirus


Employees will work remotely and meetings held using videoconferencing.

TIFFIN, OHIO – March 15, 2020 – Following Ohio Governor DeWine’s press conference on Sunday, March 15, 2020 and his request for companies to let employees work from home who can, the Tiffin-Seneca Economic Partnership has decided to voluntarily close its office until further notice to do its part to slow down the spread of COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus.

All employees will be working during normal business hours, but they will be working from home or other remote locations. All scheduled meetings that we host, lead or facilitate will be held via GoToMeeting and/or teleconferencing and not in person. Team members will be available by phone and email at the numbers and addresses listed below.

David Zak, president & CEO, commented, “As the Governor stated, this is a matter of life and death. We apologize for any inconvenience and ask that everyone do what they can to help anyone negatively impacted by this pandemic.”

Last week, TSEP made the difficult decision to cancel the St. Paddy’s Day 5K in Downtown Tiffin that was planned for Saturday, May 14, and the 2020 Downtown Tiffin Chocolate Walk that was planned for Saturday, April 4. T-shirts for those who pre-registered for the 5K and in-person refunds will be available when the office reopens. Those who registered for either event have been notified via email.
