Governor Asks Ohioans To Reconsider Halloween Plans Due To COVID-19

It was more disappointing news with Tuesday's coronavirus update from the Ohio Department of Health.

With 2,509 new cases reported from Monday to Tuesday, there have now been more than 202,000 people diagnosed in the state.

Twenty-two new deaths were also reported as that total continues to rise.

Governor Mike DeWine advised that every Ohioan should be alarmed by the totals and the trends.

The governor went so far as to ask people to consider canceling or not attending Halloween events and to reconsider attending gatherings of any size.
