Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced Wednesday three new orders have been signed by Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton, MD, MPH.

The first order partially rescinds the April 30 Stay Safe Ohio Order.

The second order, titled “Urgent Health Order: Ohioans Protecting Ohioans,” issues a series of health advisories regarding the ongoing ban on gatherings of 10 or more people, in addition to restrictions on bars, restaurants, and other businesses.

A third order, the Camp Safe Ohio Order, specifies how campgrounds in Ohio can reopen.
