Governor DeWine has issued a warning to business owners who are not complying with orders to take steps to protect employees from the spread of COVID-19. Although many businesses are heeding the advice of the Ohio Department of Health, others continue to ignore directives to keep distance between employees and keep a clean environment.
"I continue be notified of businesses that are recklessly risking lives of employees, their families, and everyone else they come in contact with. This must stop," said Governor DeWine. "As I continue to balance my responsibility to protect the people of Ohio with our attempt to keep this economy moving, let me make it clear that I will err on the side of protecting people. The bad, reckless behavior must stop."
