The facilities are asked to form several policies to ensure the safety of residents, employees, and workers.

  • Designated hours should be scheduled for visitations
  • Temperature checks should be performed on visitors
  • Residents of the facilities should be educated on the risks from the coronavirus

Gov. DeWine did not indicate when inside visitations may be able to resume.
