Governor Mike DeWine to not enforce strict rules for coronavirus
Ohio - During the first few weeks of the coronavirus crisis, Republican Governor Mike DeWine received widespread praise from a large number of Democrats for his quick stay-at-home orders and business closures.

But if the response to DeWine's coronavirus Wednesday evening's speech is any sign, then the governor's honeymoon for coronavirus with Democrats quickly gives way to criticism for not implementing state-level mask requirements and continuing to undo other far-reaching social norms even as cases return in Ohio once Others are on the increase.

In his speech, DeWine urged all Ohio residents to take "immediate action" to slow the spread of the virus, including wearing masks while in public. But he also did not announce any new health orders, saying "this discussion is for another time."

"At a time when Ohio residents were watching tonight in search of a guarantee during these chaotic and frightening times, many of us had hoped to see the governor take decisive action to slow the spread of COVID- 19 ". "Instead, what we have seen was a conservative who refuses to lead in times of crisis for fear of facing political pressure within his party."

"His cheese prevents him from doing the right thing, and keeps Ohio residents suffering for much longer than necessary," Sykes continued.

David Pepper, Ohio's Democratic Party chairman, who unsuccessfully ran for the attorney general against DeWine in 2014, noted in a statement that he publicly praised the governor in the first months of the Corona virus crisis.

"I couldn't be more disappointed in his speech today," Bieber said. "With the number of cases and deaths increasing, nothing has been announced that will change this trend. ... More must be done. Immediately. The vast majority of both parties from Ohio strongly support doing more."

A number of Democratic candidates in the state legislature tweeted similar criticisms of DeWine's speech.

Patricia Lawrence, the Democratic candidate for District 65, a Republican region heavily in Claremont County, wrote: "Nothing is great with some aspect of disappointment."

Meanwhile, his DeWine colleagues have given little public reaction to his speech.

House Representative John Cross, a northwestern Ohio Republican who has been an outspoken critic of DeWine's Coronary Virus Management orders, tweeted during the speech that people should check a new program that offers technology training grants.

Senate President Larry Opov, a Republican spokesman for Medina, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the governor's remarks.

When asked about a statement about the speech, House Speaker Larry Househall, a Republican from Perry County who has repeatedly criticized the DeWine Coronary Rules, issued a one-sentence statement Wednesday evening.

"He did a good job," said the spokesman.
