Ohio extends coronavirus curfew
Ohio will extend a statewide curfew scheduled to end on Saturday, although it isn’t clear how long the extension will last or whether the hours of the curfew will be changed. Gov. Mike DeWine said that the state was still at a high level of coronavirus cases, and that as well as a new coronavirus variant being found in Ohio is why the curfew was extended.
