Thomas Urges DeWine to Use Broadcasting System to Alert Ohioans in High-Risk Counties
Today, state Senator Cecil Thomas (D-Avondale) wrote a letter to Ohio Governor Mike DeWine urging him to use the emergency broadcasting system to alert Ohioans who live in counties that have been placed at Level 3 (red) or 4 (purple) alert for Covid-19 in the new Ohio Public Health Advisory System.
“This is precisely the time for government officials to use their powers to protect the public,” said Thomas in the letter. “Ohioans need to be warned and advised to take the necessary steps to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their community if they live or work in a red or purple county.”
