(7-22-20) Today Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced that a mandatory mask order will be in place starting Thursday night at 6pm. Apparently Buckeyes will be safe from the virus until that time.
DeWine in a tweet said – Wearing masks will make a difference. It will determine what our fall looks like. We want kids to go back to school, we want to see sports — to do that it’s very important that all Ohioans wear a mask.
As for enforcement the Darke County Sheriff’s Office posted the following on Facebook-
