COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Governor DeWine has changed the state’s guidance on cases in schools.

The governor says students wearing masks even within six feet of a person who turns out to be infected do not need to quarantine.

The stricter quarantining done earlier was a problem for school districts.

He pointed to two research studies indicating schools are one of the safest places to be.

Also, DeWine extended the 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew for three more weeks.
