DeWine wears Heidelberg University tie during COVID-19 briefing, shows virtual marching band performance Staff




Governor Mike DeWine on Friday donned a Heidelberg University tie during the second half of his daily COVID-19 press briefing.

At the end of the briefing, DeWine shared a video of the Heidelberg marching band performing their fight song virtually.

“One of the things that has been so inspiring to see throughout this time are the many virtual ‘group’ performances,” DeWine said.

DeWine previously wore a Tiffin University tie and shared a virtual performance of their student choir.

DeWine shared more details on the stay-at-home order for the state, initially set to expire May 1, which he extended until May 29 at 11:59 p.m.

Some retail establishments that have been closed amid the novel coronavirus pandemic will now be able to offer curbside pickup, delivery, and appointments starting May 2.

Beginning Friday, all health care procedures that do not require an overnight stay in a hospital can move forward. This includes dentists and veterinarians. This will be followed by manufacturing, distribution, construction and general office environments on May 4 and retail businesses on May 12.

DeWine added that the order will still include the same exceptions from the original order for leaving home including health and safety, for necessary supplies and services, and for outdoor activity.

Businesses that must remain closed through the new order include:

  • Schools
  • Restaurants and bars (carryout still permitted)
  • Personal appearance / beauty
  • Adult day support or vocational habilitation services in a congregate setting
  • Older adult day care services and senior centers
  • Child care services
  • Entertainment / recreation / gymnasiums
