COLUMBUS (AP) - A mandatory mask order will be expanded statewide across Ohio to slow the spread of the coronavirus, Gov. Mike DeWine announced Wednesday.
The mask mandate takes effect tonight for everyone age 10 and older when they're out in public or in places where they can't follow social distancing rules, DeWine said. It will not be required for children under 10 or anyone who has a medical condition that keeps them from wearing a mask. [More]
