Gov. Mike DeWine reissuing statewide mask order with new sanctions, says he may close restaurants, bars and gyms – cleveland.com

The following are the provisions, DeWine said:

1. Each retail business will be required to post a face covering requirement sign at all public entrances to the store;

2. Each store will be responsible for ensuring that customers and employees are wearing masks; and

3. A new Retail Compliance Unit, composed of agents led by the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, will inspect businesses to ensure compliance. A first violation of this order will bring about a written warning and a second violation will bring about closure of the store for up to 24 hours.

“We know that masks work,” DeWine said. “They are the easiest, most cost-effective way to limit the spread of COVID-19.” He argued that workers and shoppers have the right to be safe.
