COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – A new order by the Ohio Department of Health means fully-vaccinated staffers at nursing homes and assisted living centers will no longer need to be tested for coronavirus.

Those not fully vaccinated will still need to be tested twice a week.

Governor Mike DeWine says the science continues to make for differences between the vaccinated and unvaccinated population.

Over 40-percent of the population in the state has gotten at least the first shot.
