State health department says mask is still mandatory in Ohio

“The statewide average for cases per 100,000 is 183,” said DeWine. “This is a race, it’s a life and death race.” Franklin County is the only county in the state on a watch list for going from red to purple, the highest tier in the COVID-19 health advisory system. Dr. Bruce Vanderhoff, the Chief Medical Director Ohio Department of Health, said there’s another reason you’d want to hold onto your mask a little longer.

To do that, the old health orders had to be rescinded and the new version had to be put in place – which still requires wearing masks and social distancing in public   This week, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced health orders were being simplified.

On Friday DeWine said Ohio is going in the wrong direction in terms of case numbers to reach a goal of removing state health orders by July 4. According to the Ohio Department of Health, the short answer is no.

“We can win the race as long as we don’t falter. As long as we continue to press on with consistent masking and getting the vaccine,” said Vanderhoff. “I am confident that we will see more and more and quite frankly within the next couple of weeks the variant will be the virus that we will be dealing with,” he said.
