Ohio Governor Lifts Last Stay-at-Home Restrictions

Following suit with a number of other states in the country, Ohio Governor DeWine lifted the final stay-at-home restrictions today. The governor said the state will give strong ‘recommendations’ instead of orders now. He also added this is the final phase of the state’s fight against the virus.

The final orders included a ban on mass gathering and a compulsory two-week quarantine for anyone entering the state. These orders no longer stand, while the ‘Safe At Home’ orders is now labelled as ‘Urgent Health Advisory’.

On May 1, the Ohio governor moved the state to a ‘Safe At Home’ order which allowed non-essential businesses to reopen. Quarantine orders were given in the early days of April and mass gatherings were stopped in March.

Ohio Governor DeWine is Not Alone. Other States Are Reopening as well

DeWine reopening Ohio is not the only instance of a governors reopening states in the country. Florida and Texas have done relatively well in terms of containing the virus. They’re opening back up again and allowing non-essential businesses to start working as well.

Only a few states in the US are still under complete lockdown. These include Michigan, Illinois, New Jersey, Delaware, and DC.

The question of reopening will continue to rage on. While the Ohio governor had earlier relived some lockdown restrictions at the start of the month, these new orders will make the state return a little closer to the previous normal.

‘Reopening’ is a Partisan Issue Now

The process of reopening is dividing people into political sides. Republican governors appear keener to start reopening their states. This strategy echoes President Trump’s insistence to see the country back working. Two days back, Texas Governor Abbot tweeted the following –

For those facing an election in November, the defining issue could end up being a referendum on the handling of the pandemic. Ohio Governor DeWine, like his Republican colleagues, would hope the decision to reopen during the pandemic turns out to be the right one.
