COLUMBUS—State Rep. H. Gilson Blair (D-Weathersfield) 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.


“We have seen a marked increase in cases, with five deaths in our district on Monday alone,” Rep. Blair said. “I support Governor DeWine’s orders, which will help our most vulnerable citizens.”
