Evening building supervisor Randy Allen sweeps the hallways at Orange High School, Thursday, March 12, 2020, in Pepper Pike, Ohio. Gov. Mike DeWine ordered all schools closed for three weeks beginning Monday.

A fifth confirmed case of coronavirus prompted Gov. Mike DeWine to close all K-12 schools starting Monday and to ban gatherings of more than 100 people.

More than 50 Ohioans await test results to see whether they are infected.

DeWine will ask the president to halt inspections at nursing homes, and he also plans to ban all visitors to facilities for the elderly and those in psychiatric hospitals.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we talk about closing schools to protect students and staff, efforts to protect homeless individuals and more.

Guests:

  • Jenn Smola, higher education reporter, The Columbus Dispatch
  • Trent Bowers, superintendent, Worthington City Schools
  • Angie Adrean, chief academic officer, Worthington City Schools
