OHIO – Governor Dewine is talking curfew rollback when COVID-19.
Dewine says that if Ohio has 7 straight days of hospitalizations below 3,500, we will go to an 11 p.m. curfew for at least 2 weeks. So far, we have had 6 straight days below this number. If hospitalizations drop below 3,000 for 7 consecutive days, we plan to move to a midnight curfew for at least 2 weeks. If hospitalizations drop below 2,500 for 7 consecutive days, we feel believe that we will be able to drop the curfew.
Dewine said that hospitalizations are lagging numbers and if numbers go back up, “we would likely need to act quickly to reinstitute the appropriate safety measures.”
The Governor first issued the 10 pm to 5 am curfew in November and has extended it since.
