Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has announced that he will be working together on ideas with fellow Midwest governors on the plan of fully reopening
the state as the coronavirus pandemic curve continues to flatten in Ohio.
“Thank you to the WhiteHouse for their support of Governors as we develop recovery plans that best meet our individual state needs. I’m pleased to be working together on ideas with fellow Midwest governors,” said Governor Mike DeWine.
“After May 1, things will change, but the essential reality is that this virus will remain out there, so our lives must be guided by that. We want to make sure every individual has as much information about their own condition and what risks there are.“
“We’re trying to get Ohio back to work. And at the same time, we’re trying to protect Ohioans. Because of what you’ve done, we’re now in a much better position to do this. We’re going to have to slowly do this.”
He said “Businesses won’t be able to attract workers or customers if they feel they aren’t safe there. A lot of this will be common sense and taking what we’ve learned so far and putting it into effect.”
“Our major goals for reopening businesses in Ohio, protect employees and customers.”
“There is no substitute for distancing. More distancing is always better.
I’d expect to see people wearing masks. This is going to become common in public places.You’ll see barriers where barriers are appropriate.You’ll see surfaces cleaned frequentlyYou’ll see people wearing gloves.Staggered arrival times.Staggered lunches.Employees who can work from home will work from home.You’ll see temperature checks of employees who can’t work from homeIn retail, you’ll see the limit of the number of people who can be in a store.“These are some of the things we’d expect to see. We will, however, remain focused on an Ohio-specific plan: a recovery plan that works for us, that works for Ohioans, and that meets the unique needs of our state and our citizens.”“The coronavirus is just as dangerous now as it’s ever been, but we now have the understanding of what everyone’s responsibility is in this. Our goal is to find a balance between lives and livelihood.”“We will see testing evolve over a period of time to help people know if they had COVID19.”
