Ohio becomes the latest state ordered to stay at home by their Governor amid the Coronavirus Outbreak panicking a nation.
Gov. Mike DeWine has announced Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton has signed a stay-at-home order for Ohio.
“There is nothing in the order that we haven’t already been talking about. There is nothing in this that I haven’t been asking you to do for the last few weeks,” DeWine said.
DeWine said the order does permit exceptions to staying home including leaving for health and safety, for necessary supplies and services, for outdoor activity.Advertisement – Story continues below
“You can leave home to take care of others. You can take care of your neighbor, your family, your friend,” he said.
The second part of the order talks about essential workers and businesses using Homeland Security guidelines. These are the accepted businesses that are essential for us to continue to live.
“Each business that stays open must follow good protocol in regard to health,” DeWine said.
The order will go into effect at 11:59 p.m. Monday and stay in effect until April 6.
