DeWine’s office said Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton will not be attendance at Tuesday’s briefing.

After a weekend of reports from the public that some restaurants were not following the state’s guidelines to maintain social distancing, DeWine made it clear that Ohio’s economic recovery is directly tied to how successful Ohioans are at disrupting the spread of the virus by practicing social distancing, even when out supporting local businesses.
