Governor DeWine has continued to express concern about the rising number of cases and urges residents to be vigilant. He said it’s important to wear masks and practice social distancing.

“About three and a half weeks ago, this thing turned on us. Many doctors, medical professionals, health experts predicted that when it started getting colder, we got into winter, late fall, people moving back inside, spending more time inside, that this virus would kick up. Frankly, we had no idea it was going to kick up this much,” Gov. DeWine told FOX 8 News on Thursday.
