To help reduce the virus’s spread, Gov. Mike DeWine issued a statewide curfew which went into effect Thursday.

The curfew will be in effect for 21 days from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Retail establishments should be closed, and people should be at home during those hours, the governor said.

DeWine says that going to work, an emergency, or medical care are exceptions to the curfew. He says it’s also not intended to prevent people from going to a pharmacy or getting groceries.

Take-out, drive-thru, and meal delivery are still allowed, but no food and drink can be served in person after 10 p.m.
