During Governor Mike DeWine’s daily Coronavirus update on Thursday, July 30th, he announced an additional 1,733 new cases in Ohio – the largest daily count the state has reported so far. If we continue to see a rise in case numbers, Ohio could become the next COVID-19 hot spot. As we head into the weekend, Bexley’s COVID-19 Task Force has some reminders for the community:
- 11-20 year olds are transmitting the virus at the same frequency as adults. Continue reminding pre-teens and teens to cover their faces, routinely wash hands, and socially distant from friends and others outside of the household.
- Inside the car = inside! Passengers in your vehicle should be from your household. If it necessary to ride in a vehicle that isn’t your own, please wear a face covering.
- Not wearing a face covering correctly = not wearing a face covering. Do not wear your face covering around one ear, under your chin, or on your head. To protect yourself and those around you, ensure your mouth, nose, and chin are covered at all times.
- Wear a face covering when receiving your order at a fast food restaurant. Protect yourself and the employees from exposure!
