This week’s COVID-19 update comes with news regarding Morgan Schools. All district school buildings were to be closed beginning Monday, Nov. 16 through December 1. Due to a rise of coronavirus cases, including two students, Morgan Schools will resort to online learning through the Thanksgiving Break.

Governor Mike DeWine prompted Ohioans to “recommit to their individual efforts” to slow the spread. He cited the record number of coronavirus-related hospitalizations across the state, 3,000 in total, with 700 in ICU. Additionally, a revised mask mandate was issued. Stores are now required to post a sign about face-covering requirements at all public entrances. These stores are responsible for making sure these requirements are followed, with a new Retail Compliance Unit that will inspect stores and issue potential violations. New restrictions will also be placed on social gatherings. Bars, restaurants and fitness centers are allowed to remain open for now, but DeWine said that closures may result in the near future if cases keep rising.
