The DeWine administration also announced Friday that schools can begin applying Monday for a new BroadbandOhio Connectivity Grant to help defray the cost of hotspots and internet-enabled devices for students. A total of $50 million will be available.
More guidance about sports at the junior high, high school and college level will be announced next week, DeWine said.
The governor said that he has confidence in how schools are handling the pandemic, but that the concern lies with what students do once they leave the classrooms.
The governor reiterated the importance of social distancing, wearing masks and good hand washing as the most effective ways to slow the spread of the virus.
