COLUMBUS Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, Lt. Gov. Jon Husted and Ohio Dept. of Health Director Amy Acton, M.D. MPH, announced Ohio will be under a "Stay at Home" order. The order will go into effect beginning Monday at 11:59 p.m. through April 6, unless it is rescinded or modified, according to a Sunday press release.

"We haven't faced an enemy like we are facing today in 102 years — we are at war. In the time of war, we must make sacrifices, and I thank all of our Ohio citizens for what they are doing and what they aren't doing. You are making a huge difference, and this difference will save lives," said DeWine. "Right now, we are in a crucial time in this battle. What we do now will slow this invader so that our healthcare system will have time to treat those who have contracted COVID-19 and also have time to treat those who have other medical problems. Time is of the essence."

More details to come.
