Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced that Ohio Department of Health Interim Director Lance Himes signed a health order to enforce mask-wearing in retail locations across the state in compliance with the statewide mandatory mask order signed on July 23, 2020.

In a tweet issued Wednesday, he said, "We are reissuing Ohio’s mask order with three new provisions. The first violation of this order will bring about a written warning and a second violation will bring about closure of the store for up to 24 hours."
