Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has issued a proclamation that activated around 300 Ohio National Guard members to help Cleveland Police ensure a safe and secure environment for those attending the Tuesday, September 29, 2020 presidential debate in Cleveland.
The proclamation followed “a formal request from Cleveland officials and we are granting that. It is a backup”, said Governor Mike DeWine at the weekly update on Covid19.
The first of the 2020 presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden will hold at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.
On the eventual outcome of the election, Governor DeWine said, “anybody who runs for President wants to win and wants to fight till the end. Without exception, the loser concedes. That has happened in every election. Whoever loses, once that is done, the loser goes off the stage.”
Meanwhile, Governor DeWine said that Ohio has started “recommending that all residential colleges and universities regularly test a sample population of their asymptomatic students. Some schools are already doing this.”
“Screening asymptomatic students really gives college presidents and their staff an idea of the spread on their campuses. Our expectation is that each campus plan to screen at least 3% of their at-risk population.”
Also, speaking at the briefing, Ohio Department of Aging Director Ursel McElroy said visitations to nursing facility will begin on October 12, 2020.
Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities Director Jeff Davis said that “indoor visitation at intermediate care facilities will begin Monday, September 28.”
Governor Mike DeWine has appointed Sarah Shendy as Director of Ohio Office of Law Enforcement Recruitment.
“I created this office in June as part of our work to improve the relationship between law enforcement and our citizens”.
