The Board of Health may make such orders and regulations as it deems necessary for its own government, for the public health, the prevention or restriction of disease and the prevention, abatement or suppression of nuisances. In accordance with Ohio R. C. 3709.20, orders and regulations not for the government of the Board, but intended for the general public, shall be adopted, advertised, recorded and certified as are other ordinances of the City, and the record thereof shall be given the same force and effect in all courts of the State, as is given such ordinances. However, in cases of emergency caused by an epidemic of contagious or infectious diseases, or conditions or events endangering the public health, the Board may declare such orders and regulations to be emergency measures, in which case they shall become immediately effective without such advertising, recording and certifying.
