The cease and desist orders were the first three in Greene County under the stay-at-home order.
The orders specifically referred to pet grooming services. PetSmart is still able to sell pet food.
The cease and desist order was consistent with other health departments in the state, including ones in Trumbull, Mahoning and Stark counties.
The state’s Dispute Resolution Commission ruled that pet grooming does not fall under the essential business guidelines, according to public health.
