“What we’ve seen is just a lot of casual events in our lives where people are not careful. They don’t wear a mask. They don’t social distance,” Gov. DeWine said.

The governor also announced plans to downgrade all county fairs to junior fairs, and made moves to reset capacity levels at child care centers across the state.

DeWine is not giving another press conference until Thursday, but he did release an updated travel advisory list for Ohioans today.
