The Ohio Department of Health has ordered residents to “stay at home” to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
There are few exceptions for obtaining essential supplies such as food and medicine, walking outdoors (although playgrounds are closed), and operating specified essential workplaces.
The order goes into effect at 11:59 p.m. Monday and formalizes the strong recommendations Gov. Mike Dewine and Ohio Health Director Amy Acton made all last week.
It’s largely the same as “shelter-in-place” orders other states have enacted. The order will be in effect through at least April 6.
