COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther tweeted Wednesday evening he is “strongly considering” a mandate requiring people to wear masks in public.
Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine applauded the move saying in part, “Wearing a mask will allow us to help keep businesses open and help prevent further spikes. I encourage other communities to consider following Dayton’s lead.”
“I made the decision, right or wrong, that . . . mandating that every Ohioan out in public wear a mask was something that a significant amount of Ohioans would not accept,” DeWine said on Monday.
