Chinese translation of Ohio Stay-at Home order
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced that Ohio’s Stay at Home order has been extended until 11:59 p.m. on May 1, 2020. A Chinese translation of the order can be found here.
“We understand that this is tough - it is very difficult. But, I would not be making these decisions if it wasn’t a matter of life and death,” said Governor DeWine. “We have to keep this monster down. It’s not dead - it’s very much alive.”
Updates to the new order include:
The creation of a dispute resolution process for situations where two local health departments have come to a different conclusion on what is or is not an essential business.
The requirement that essential businesses determine and enforce a maximum number of customers allowed in a store at one time. These businesses must ensure that people waiting to enter the stores maintain safe social distancing.
Direction that travelers arriving to Ohio should self-quarantine for 14 days. Exceptions include persons who live and work in trans-border areas, heath care workers, public health workers, public safety workers, transportation workers and designated essential workers. Visitors are instructed not to travel to Ohio if they are displaying symptoms, excepting in certain circumstances for medical care.
