Yesterday, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced that Dr. Amy Acton had stepped down as Director of the Ohio Department of Health, instead moving into the role of Chief Health Advisor (which she explains in the video above).
“Not all heroes wear capes,” DeWine said during the press conference. “Some wear white coats. This particular hero’s white coat is embossed with the name Dr. Amy Acton.”
The governor also said that coronavirus testing would now be made available to all people who’d like to have the test.
