The governor chided county fairs for not following guidelines
On Wednesday, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine warned fair managers across the state that the state was seeing evidence that the state’s guidelines for holding fairs this summer were not being followed in some counties. He pointed out an outbreak of 19 coronavirus cases traced to one county fair, and said that if fairs wanted to continue, they will have to follow the rules and direction of their local health department.
