COLUMBUS, OH - Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced that effective on July 20, nursing homes will be permitted to begin outdoor visitation, so long as all safety standards are met.
The order and related guidance will be made available at coronavirus.ohio.gov.
Last week, Governor DeWine acknowledged that navigating safety protocols regarding nursing homes could prove difficult with 70 percent of Ohio's coronavirus-related deaths so far having come from nursing homes. The Governor also said that the state plans to take additional steps toward increasing testing in nursing homes after implementing the Ohio National Guard to aid in the process back in May.
