Gov. Mike DeWine (R-Ohio) postpones Tuesday's Dem primary, orders most everything else in the state to close down

In my view, GOP Governor Mike DeWine and his Health Director, Amy Action are doing a great job attacking this health risk aggressively. As things now stand, DeWine has my vote in the next election cycle.

COLUMBUS (WJW) — The Ohio Department of Health on Monday said there are now 50 confirmed cases, with 14 people hospitalized.

Here is the breakdown of counties: Belmont (2), Butler (6), Cuyahoga (24), Franklin (3), Geauga (1), Lorain (3), Lucas (1), Medina (2), Stark (3), Summit (2), Trumbull (2), Tuscarawas (1)

On Sunday, the Ohio Department of Health reported 37 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Ohio with 361 people awaiting test results.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, Ohio Lt. Governor Jon Husted, Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose, and Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton, M.D., MPH will speak at the latest press conference.

On Sunday, Gov. DeWine announced the closing of bars and restaurants to dine-in customers; carry-out and delivery are still options.

Gov. DeWine also said the closing of day cares is coming soon. “I would plead if anyone has a child in daycare and you can conceivably come up with a way to take that child out of daycare, please do so,” DeWine said on Sunday.

**Gov. DeWine talked to the President this afternoon, along with other governors.

**Closed at end of business today: fitness centers, gyms, bowling alleys, public rec centers, movie theaters, indoor water parks, and trampoline parks. Gov. DeWine says they will modify order from 100 to 50 people because of CDC guidelines.

**”We cannot conduct this election tomorrow,” DeWine said. Voting will be extended through June 2, the governor said.

**”Each voter will be given ample opportunity to vote,” DeWine said.

**Dr. Acton: ages of those with coronavirus: 14-86; the median age is 51. “We do know that children get this.”

**Dr. Acton: “Grocery stores, banks will remain open.”

“We’re going to get through this, but it’s going to take awhile,” Gov. DeWine said. ... us-update/
