For a while now, most of Ohio has been under a mask mandate thanks in part to each of the counties who had enforced that rule to have everyone wear any type of face covering.
Now come 6 p.m. on July 23, the entire state will have to wear those covering to help stop the spread of the coronavirus disease.
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has revealed that there will be an official “statewide mask mandate” going into effect by the end of this week.
The rules will be the same as the counties that have been on Level 3 in the Ohio Public Health Advisory System that the Department of Public Health launched recently.
From WEWS News 5 Cleveland:
All Ohioans are now required to wear a face mask or covering in indoor public spaces and outdoors when unable to maintain a 6-foot distance from others. There are exceptions for children under 10, those with medical conditions that would preclude the wearing of a mask, and in other situations where wearing a mask would be unfeasible.
