Some states have already done away with their statewide mask mandate, and perhaps others may follow suit. But in Ohio, such measures are not on the radar for now, even though cases of COVID-19 are down and vaccine distribution is up. Akron mayor Dan Horrigan joined the Ray Horner Morning Show for his weekly visit, which hits on everything related to the coronavirus. Horrigan talked about the availability in obtaining the vaccine, as well as the increase in messaging to convince residents to take it. As for the gatherings, Horrigan says his staff is working with the governor for the safe return of these events as the cases trend down. The mayor also touched on the present and future use of the Chapel Hill Mall property, and how the East End project is coming along, even after much of the planning took a backseat during the pandemic.
