More Counties Soon?

An Ohio order, requiring masks to be worn in public, may include a lot more counties soon…as the coronavirus continues to spread in the state. Governor DeWine was on NBC’s “Meet the Press”…he said he is still considering a statewide mask mandate. On Thursday, the Republican governor ordered Ohio residents in 19 counties, which include almost 60% of the state’s population, to wear a mask in public. DeWine added health departments in the state indicate that the increase is occurring in bars, churches and from people traveling out of state. The governor also said that though testing in Ohio has doubled over the past five weeks, it needs to increase more and that will require help from the federal government over a long period of time. Ohio health officials report the state now has more than 70,700 confirmed cases.
