You Said It: Readers sound off after DeWine's mask reversal

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced Tuesday his administration would not require any customer or worker to wear face coverings when businesses reopen in May, just a day after saying they would be required to do so.

Ohio Capital Journal readers were heavily critical of DeWine’s decision, though a few defended him. Here are a selection of responses:

Ann Bennett: “I am really sorry he backed away from this. If Ohio can mandate seat belts to save lives it can mandate safety masks or alternative protective gear for the same reason. I get that some people with autism, PTSD and similar issues have a real problem wearing such things. In that case, work with medical and behavioral experts to find safe alternatives.”

Sherry Dyke: “(DeWine) really dropped in my respect. I work were [sic] everyone wears a mask, customers as well as employees. It is great. Really disappointed.”

1. I have yet to hear from anyone what has or will change in May, June, July or any month?

Until there is a vaccination that is safe, universal quick testing, a treatment forget it. Stay home, wash your hands, wear a mask.

2. I agree, we are still plateaued at 2,000 deaths a day, soon to increase.

It amazes me that so many people have put their heads together to figure out how to have baseball games but we have yet to figure out how to have available medical supplies, how to have available testing, both kinds of tests, how to do social contacting.

Maybe we should get the baseball minds to work on the coronavirus task force?

4. A fly over by the Thunderbirds and Blue Angels are the ticket.

That should cheer up the people dealing with death.

3. I think that Trump is looking at other countries opening up,

and he will look bad if the US doesn't open up. The problem is that the other countries have followed the experts guidelines, in the US we have no leadership, we have 50 different guidelines.

Oh I forgot, we do have 1 guideline, states can't close down meat packing facilities.

5. I'm sure much of this is because of pressure from the GOP controlled legislatures

Saw an article in the Dayton Daily News last night, Householder and others in state-level government are pushing him to open bars and restaurants right away, to ease up a lot faster than he's so far indicated he wants to. The state budget has to be worked out soon, and he'll have to work with them to get a budget, so they're holding it over his head. If he doesn't cave on everything, he'll be braver than any Republican who's been governor in Ohio in a very long time. I'm afraid the more pressure there is on him, the more likely he is to cave, though.
