Gov. DeWine ending COVID-19 state of emergency for Ohio Right now the state is relying on a “Mask Honor Code” recommending those who are not vaccinated to continue to wear face coverings. Health leaders say Ohioans need to take the recommendation seriously.
“You are putting yourself in danger if you happen to carry the virus you will be responsible for giving it to other people including your loved ones,” said Colon. Other residents say the 15 months of health restrictions really burnt them out mentally and want life to return to normal.
Dealing with depression, mental health issues amid the pandemic “If I had family members that are older and having problems, I would wear a mask in that situation,” said David Waddle, a resident of Dayton. “But personally, I’m not wearing a mask anymore. I’m done, I don’t have to do it at work so I’m not wearing a mask.”
“They will just walk into a business that still requires it just because they’re tired of wearing it or don’t agree with the rules,” said Keeton. “Maybe even think they’re bigger than the rules, I don’t know.” Doug Keeton, a resident of Dayton, got vaccinated to protect his immunocompromised son but says he knows other people who aren’t vaccinated that disregard the honor code.
