The streets of Ohio’s cities will be much quieter Tuesday morning if the state’s businesses and residents abide by new orders issued Sunday by Governor Mike DeWine.

The governor and Ohio Director of Health Dr. Amy Acton issued a “stay-at-home” health order that will go into effect at 11:59 p.m. Monday.

The order requires residents to stay at home with the exception of essential needs, such as going to the grocery store, restaurant carryout, weddings and funerals. DeWine did say playgrounds are closed, but parks remain open and he encouraged people to get outside with the proper social distancing.

“We haven’t faced an enemy like we are facing today in 102 years” since the Spanish flu, DeWine said. “We are at war. In the time of war, we have to make sacrifices.

“We are Ohioans. We are Buckeyes. We are strong,” he said.

2. It throws a lot of people's schedules off for this week

(I know--and so it should!)
I've got to try to run a couple of errands for my Mom tomorrow to make it easier for her (I live 40 minutes away and am usually down there twice a week)

3. I'm going out of state for a funeral Tuesday

I still haven’t found out whether my workplace will remain open. I’ve looked at DHS guidelines at what constitutes ‘essential’ industry...still not sure.

5. Check on lodging availability before you leave.

Several states have mandated the closure of motels and hotels.
