COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Gov. Mike DeWine eased Ohio’s stay-at-home order and travel restrictions from mandatory to strongly recommended Tuesday. He emphasized that the coronavirus is not gone and Ohioans must keep putting the safety of others first to contain its spread. The new “urgent health advisory” still strongly encourages Ohioans to stay home or to avoid unnecessary travel. DeWine said those who travel into Ohio will no longer need to observe a 14-day quarantine, unless they’re showing signs COVID-19. A spokesman said the advisory won't lift mandatory business protocols, restrictions on large gatherings or social distancing guidelines.
