Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has said that the plan to reopening the state expected to be announced Monday, April 27, 2020 will have a great emphasis on safety for employees.
“We want to get people working again and get them back to as normal a life as possible, but we have to be careful,” said Governor Mike DeWine.
“Ohioans have put us here because of their strong efforts to stay home. Because of their strong efforts on social distancing.”
“We are now able to start down the path to get businesses up and running. We’ll run through the plan with you next week.”
“We don’t want to see spikes in cases and we don’t want to have to pull back. We will be laying out a hopeful schedule on Monday.”
“We will go further than we did in our first order about defining how employers must protect employees.”
Also, Lt. Governor Jon Husted said, “We know there are people with legitimate health concerns who can’t come back to work. We’ll be encouraging employers to accommodate these workers.”
On the election next Tuesday, he said, “There are 1.7 million Ohioans who’ve requested a ballot to vote by mail, but under 1 million have voted. There is still time to request your ballot but do it fast. You have until Monday to have it postmarked. Or you can drop it off at your board of elections dropbox.”
“These dropboxes are secure, and you won’t need to come into contact with any other people. You can drop it off until 7:30 pm on Election Day (Tuesday).”
