DeWine Announces Consolidation of COVID-Related Health Orders

Gov. Mike DeWine Monday said the state is simplifying most COVID-19 health orders to reflect four basic principles: masks, distance, hand washing and gathering outside. The consolidation of orders aims to clarify mitigation efforts as graduations, proms and summer festival and fair season begins. For hospitals, OHA has asked members to continue with ventilator and equipment inventory reporting to the OHA Resource Tracker and the statewide Hospital PPE Readiness Stockpile to comply with federal requirements and other planning efforts.
