Ohio Creating Board To Expedite Economic Recovery From Coronavirus

Governor Mike DeWine says he is creating an economic advisory board to help the state recover when the coronavirus pandemic ends.

DeWine announced the board was being assembled now to plan ahead and then quickly move forward when the crisis is over.

Frank Sullivan from Medina-based RPM International was selected to lead the board.

In the last two weeks, the Department of Jobs and Family Services says more than 450,000 people have applied for unemployment benefits due to COVID-19.
