#StayHomeOhio: It does permit exceptions to staying home. Common sense exceptions: leaving for health and safety, for necessary supplies and services, for outdoor activity (walking your dog, going to a park -- although playgrounds are closed).— Governor Mike DeWine (@GovMikeDeWine) March 22, 2020

The orders can be enforced by the local health departments and local law enforcement. It will go into effect at 11:59 tomorrow and stay in effect until April 6. We'll reassess then. #StayHomeOhio— Governor Mike DeWine (@GovMikeDeWine) March 22, 2020

All childcare centers, beginning on Thursday, must operate under a Temporary Pandemic Child Care license. We will also go down to a maximum of six children per room. This is a dramatic change, but it's necessary to minimize the risk to these kids. #COVID19OhioReady— Governor Mike DeWine (@GovMikeDeWine) March 22, 2020

Daycare: The number of kids in daycare has gone down dramatically. At the beginning of this, there were 117,000 kids in daycare subsidized by #Ohio. That number has gone down to 17,000. We don't have good numbers on private daycares.— Governor Mike DeWine (@GovMikeDeWine) March 22, 2020

Again -- this is an order, but it's a reasonable order that is consistent with what has to be done. If everyone cooperates we'll save a lot of lives. The healthcare system won't get overwhelmed. Use common sense. #COVID19OhioReady— Governor Mike DeWine (@GovMikeDeWine) March 22, 2020

In the future, we'll talk a lot about #PPE. We are maximizing what we have, and we're working with the federal government to get more, but we have a number of businesses in #Ohio that are working to make #PPE for us.— Governor Mike DeWine (@GovMikeDeWine) March 22, 2020

We don't look to see a bunch of people arrested. This is not what we want to accomplish. By doing the #StayHome health order, we can convey the seriousness of this. The businesses that stay open must figure out how to follow these guidelines.— Governor Mike DeWine (@GovMikeDeWine) March 22, 2020
