On the morning of the announcement of mask mandates in seven counties, Ohio governor Mike DeWine joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to discuss a slew of issues, most of which were related to COVID-19. The governor talked at length about the continued fight against the virus in Ohio, from the urging of social distancing to the importance of mask use. He also touched on the spike in cases Ohio has seen, and he says he does not want to close the state down again as long as businesses and citizens comply. DeWine also mentioned the recent school guidelines passed by the state. Teachers and administrators will be required to wear masks, and face coverings is strongly recommended for students from grades three and up.
