COLUMBUS—State Rep. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati) issued a statement today following Gov. DeWine’s executive order to require facemasks in several Ohio counties, including Butler, Cuyahoga, Franklin, Hamilton, Huron, Montgomery, and Trumbull. Each of the counties falls within Level 3 of the state’s new Public Health Advisory System, which was unveiled July 2. Level 3 indicates very high exposure and spread of coronavirus.
Several cities in Ohio have already moved to require facemasks, including Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Dayton.
“Wearing a mask isn’t a political positon, it’s a social responsibility,” Rep. Denson said. “This is something relatively small and simple that most all of us can do to protect one another.”
