Ohio Governor Makes More Recommendations Regarding Coronavirus


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--Ohio Governor Mike DeWine used another press conference on Tuesday to offer more recommendations for Ohioans to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, with still three cases in the state, all in Cuyahoga County.

He is asking that any indoor sporting events scheduled in the near-future to be held without spectators, if possible, or organizers should take steps to limit the number of spectators in attendance.

DeWine says outdoor events, like baseball games and parades, can continue.

As for colleges, DeWine is asking that universities screen students that traveled over their spring break, or took a trip on a cruise ship.

Many Ohio universities have already gone to virtual instruction for the next few weeks, including The Ohio State University, Miami University, Bowling Green State University, and the University of Toledo.

As for attending church, DeWine says best practices should be honored, and missing services should not be out of the question.

There are now more than 1,000 cases of coronavirus in 37 states.
