«As we look around the state, every county is being impacted. There is no relief found. There is no place where the virus isn’t transmitting at a high rate,» said Dr. Bruce Vanderhoff, Ohio Department of Health chief medical officer.

«A month ago we had 1,000 people in the hospital at any given time. Today, that number is more than 3,600 and it’s growing considerably,» he added.

DeWine asked Ohio residents to make additional efforts to cut down trips outside the home, even within the curfew’s parameters.

He suggested consolidating grocery trips and saying no to social activities, instead opting for calling friends and family.

«Ask yourself what you can do for your fellow man. Ask yourself what you can do for the people of Ohio,» DeWine implored. «We are all in this together and what each of us does will make a difference.»
