Gov. Mike DeWine speaks at his daily coronavirus press conference on March 30, 2020.

Gov. Mike DeWine has issued a 21-day statewide curfew starting tomorrow that requires most retail establishments to close from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The governor said he opted for a slowdown instead of a shutdown to curb the dramatic rise in coronavirus cases. In Ohio’s hardest hit counties, one out of every 100 people was diagnosed with Covid in the last two weeks.

We discuss the latest news on slowing down the spread of COVID, and an OhioHealth doctor answers listener questions.

Guests:
