Governor DeWine Extends Statewide Curfew, Announces Holiday Protocols

Last week, Governor Mike DeWine has extended the state’s 10 p.m. curfew to January 2. The curfew is an extension. The current order, which expires Dec. 10, requires Ohioans to be in their place of residence between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.


However, according to a press release from the Governor's office, the curfew does not apply to those going to and from work, those who have an emergency, or those who need medical care. The curfew is not intended to stop anyone from getting groceries or going to the pharmacy.


The Governor also recently announced the Stay Safe Ohio protocol for the holiday season. The protocol is being issued by the state Department of Health and will remain in effect for the next 21 days. The protocols can be seen in the infographic below:
