CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - It turns out the Ohio Department of Health website was not hacked on Thursday, according to Gov. Mike DeWine who clarified the situation.

Technical difficulties delayed the online release of the state’s latest COVID-19 information, which is typically updated daily at 2 p.m.

Gov. DeWine said the website glitch also impacted the state’s ability to release his reopening strategy for Ohio schools for the upcoming academic year.
