DeWine OKs outdoor visits to nursing homes, eyes limits on bars

Jul 1, 2020 | Featured | 0 comments

Gov. Mike DeWine announced on Monday that outdoor visits at nursing homes can resume Monday, July 20. DeWine also voiced concern for the rapidly increasing coronavirus cases around Dayton and Cincinnati, and extended most of his health orders through the rest of the week.

DeWine said not to read anything into his extension of orders governing restaurants, gyms, day camps and the like. He said he just needs time to revise them a bit, and the orders were to expire Wednesday, July 1.

If DeWine plans to set new limits on bars, where health experts say the virus is spreading, look for him to do it before the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

After two months of decreasing COVID-19 patients in Ohio hospitals, the count increased from about 500 to 550 patients to 650 patients on June 21-27.

“Thankfully, ICU and ventilator utilization at the state level is still holding steady,” DeWine said on Monday. “But we are seeing increases in some areas, such as Cleveland, Dayton and Cincinnati.”
