On May 19, Governor DeWine released details of the new "Ohioans Protecting Ohioans Urgent Health Advisory" which replaces the Stay Safe Ohio order that was issued on April 30, 2020.
The health order replaces language requiring Ohioans to stay at home with limited exceptions with language that strongly recommends that citizens, especially those who are high-risk, stay at home as much as possible. The order does not change the mass gathering restrictions, which remain at a 10-person limit.
The new health advisory also lifts overall travel restrictions and the requirement to quarantine if someone travels to or returns to Ohio. Unnecessary travel within or outside of Ohio is not encouraged.
Licensees of the CSWMFT Board should review COVID-19 orders and guidance issued by the Ohio Department of Health when determining steps they should take when serving clients in person. Visit coronavirus.ohio.gov for more information. The Board is not mandating any specific policies.
