OHIO – Governor Dewine reflects on a year of Pandemic and stay at home orders.
Dewine said that, “one year ago today, our battle against COVID-19 began. That was our first full day in this fight, and none of us then fully understood the battle ahead. This has been a tough year. Many have lost a parent, a grandparent, a sibling, a spouse, and some have even lost a child. Yet we did what Ohioans always do– we rallied together. We sacrificed. We worked hard to protect the most vulnerable.”
Dewine says we have vaccinated 1.8 million in Ohio so far, and more is on the way.
Dewine says that we must keep pressing forward through the pandemic, and not let up. “All of us are so sick of this virus.”
The governor said that we have three highly tested vaccines and mask mandates. Dewine reemphasized the orders that are still in place, with 30% capacities for fairs and events.
Dewine said that he will lift the orders when 50 cases per 100,000 people for two weeks.
