Wearing Masks In Public Not A Political Issue, Governor Says

(ONN) – Ohio Governor Mike DeWine says wearing masks while in public during the coronavirus pandemic should not be a political issue.

DeWine was reacting on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday to North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum’s call for support and encouragement for those wearing masks since they may be protecting someone vulnerable to the virus.

DeWine called those comments “spot on” and said “this is one time when we truly are all in this together.”

DeWine earlier issued an order for Ohioans to wear masks while shopping in stores but then reversed himself, calling the order “a bridge too far.”
