“Ohio is at a critical moment and we must do everything we can to slow the spread of the coronavirus in our cities and across the state. We commend Gov. DeWine for making this tough, but important call. It is so important that every Ohioan, urban and rural, follow these orders and stay safe. These are steps we must take to get through this as quickly and as safely as possible. Ohioans have a history of rising to the challenge in tough times, and we will do that again today and in the months ahead.”
