OHIO (WJW) — Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine Friday visited a vaccination site in Cleveland

DeWine stopped at the Salvation Army of East Cleveland in partnership with the Cuyahoga County Board of Health and the city of East Cleveland Friday morning.

The visit followed DeWine’s announcement Thursday of a target for when life in Ohio can get back to normal.

In a statewide evening address, the governor said when the state reaches 50 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents for a two-week period, he will drop all state health orders.

At the Salvation Army, he reiterated that Ohio received over 450,000 doses of vaccine this week. There are also currently 1,200 vaccination sites along with other pop-up sites like the Salvation Army.

If residents continue to wear masks and get vaccinated, he said, that’s how the state will get back to normal.

“These are two things that are going to get us to have a spring and summer that we can get back to normal,” he said. “We’re getting back to where we need to go, but we have to continue to stay focused.”
