Governor DeWine announced today that the Ohio Department of Health has issued a “simplified” health order that “streamlines” previous orders into a single order that underscores the most important tenants of infection prevention.
“Our understanding of this virus and how it spreads is much more advanced than it was when we first learned about coronavirus in early 2020,” said Governor DeWine. “As we move to begin a new chapter in our fight against the pandemic, where more and more Ohioans are being vaccinated, this new order will focus on our best defense measures against COVID-19, such as wearing a mask, social distancing, limiting large gatherings, being outside, and practicing good hand hygiene.”
Read the Orders:
- Director’s Order for Social Distancing, Facial Coverings, and Non-Congregating
