COLUMBUS—State Rep. Beth Liston (D-Dublin) issued a statement today following Gov. DeWine’s executive order to require facemasks in several Ohio counties, including Butler, Cuyahoga, Franklin, Hamilton, Huron, Montgomery, and Trumbull. Each of the counties falls within Level 3 of the state’s new Public Health Advisory System, which was unveiled July 2. Level 3 indicates very high exposure and spread of coronavirus.


Several cities in Ohio have already moved to require facemasks, including Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Dayton.


“Masks are important so people can leave the house free from fear and so that schools and businesses can be open safely. They are a critical tool to fight this deadly pandemic,” Rep. Liston said.
