Governor DeWine announced that beginning on Thursday, July 23, at 6:00 p.m., a statewide mask mandate will go into effect for citizens living in all 88 Ohio counties.
All individuals in Ohio must wear facial coverings in public at all times when at an indoor location that is not a residence; outdoors, but unable to maintain six-foot social distance from people who are not household members; and waiting for, riding, driving, or operating public transportation, such as a taxi, a car service, or a private car used for ride-sharing.
The order only requires those 10 years old or older to wear a mask. Additional exclusions include those with a medical condition or a disability or those communicating with someone with a disability; those who are actively exercising or playing sports; those who are officiants at religious services; those who are actively involved in public safety; and/or those who are actively eating or drinking.
Schools should follow the guidance previously issued pertaining to masks.
