OHIO – State Governors of Texas and Mississippi went on record yesterday and removed all mandates for the COVID-19 Pandemic, but Governor Dewine says he’s still holding for Critical Mass.
DeWine’s plan for critical mass has come up in several press conferences since talk of reducing curfew orders.
While people who have been vaccinated have “great immunity” against severe forms of the coronavirus, including protection from being hospitalized or dying, they could still get the virus in a weakened form, Tierney said.
That means they could transmit the virus to people at risk of serious complications, he said.
“We need to wear the mask to protect ourselves and others from the virus spreading until we get that critical mass where the vaccine is doing that for us,” Tierney said in a press release.
Dewine has hinted at a 60 to 70% of Ohio vaccinated before dropping mask and social distancing orders.
Only about 1.7 million people in Ohio have received one shot of Covid-19 vaccine only about 15% of the population, and only 8% according to the Health department have completed the two part vaccine.
