Gov. DeWine: Schools likely to be closed longer than 3 weeks, daycare closures expected soon

Gov. DeWine announced several changes during Sunday's press conference.

OHIO, USA — All Ohio schools, K - 12, are currently closed for a 3-week extended spring break beginning Monday, March 16. 

During Sunday's press conference, Gov. DeWine said he doesn't believe that will be enough time and his order will likely be extended. 

He’s now saying it’s possible schools within the state of Ohio could be closed for the remainder of the school year.

DeWine also mentioned childcare during Sunday's press conference. While day cares haven't been shutdown yet, he says that measure is on the way. 

Dr. Amy Acton says that due to the rapid and ongoing changes, it is becoming increasingly harder to provide accurate updates. However, as of Sunday afternoon, Ohio has 36 confirmed cases of COVID-19 spanning 11 counties.
