CLEVELAND — On Thursday's edition of the On the GO! aftershow, the 3News morning team discussed what you need to know about the statewide curfew and the stay-at-home advisories that have been activated in a handful of Ohio counties.

All these efforts are attempts to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Morning show co-anchor Dave Chudowsky reminded viewers that the curfew will be in place for the next 21 days between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. The curfew is targeted at individuals, but retail locations and some businesses are expected to close during restricted hours.

Watch the On the GO! aftershow for more tips on celebrating Thanksgiving safely. You can view the full episode for Thursday, Nov. 19 in the player below:

Cuyahoga, Franklin and Medina counties have issued stay-at-home advisories asking people to limit activity outside of their homes in order to lessen contact with others. Note: Summit County also enacted a stay-at-home advisory after this conversation was held.

On the GO! viewers chimed in with how these changes are impacting their lives.

Jessie Osburn wrote on Facebook: “I’ve always had an open door policy for Thanksgiving to anyone who didn’t have a family to be with but this year I’m not. It’s sad. I’m sad. But I’ll do what’s needed to stay safe.”

However, Geegi Faye, another Facebook viewer, questioned the effectiveness of the curfew: “The curfew doesn’t make sense. People are gathering during the day at work, schools gyms and stores. This 10p-5a curfew is for the birds literally.”

Meanwhile, On the GO!, co-anchor Maureen Kyle shared tips for Thanksgiving from an interview she recently conducted with a representative from the Cuyahoga County Board of Health. Some of the advice includes:

  • Only have Thanksgiving dinner with people who live within your household.
  • If you do incorporate people who do not live within your household, only have 10 or less, wear masks and stagger guests at the dinner table.
  • Don’t go Black Friday shopping.
