COLUMBUS, Ohio — With Ohioans spending these last few weeks staying at home amid coronavirus concerns, Gov. Mike DeWine has found a creative way to keep smiles going.

“In an effort to have some lighthearted fun, we’re having a virtual Spirit Week in #Ohio," Gov. DeWine tweeted Sunday.

It all kicks off with Pajama Day on Monday. You can see the week's full schedule below...

  • Monday: Pajama Day: Stay in your PJs all day – even during meetings.
  • Tuesday: Garden Day: Plant your gardens.
  • Wednesday: Salute Your Hero: Doctors, nurses, truck drivers, firefighters, teachers. Dress up like your hero, draw a picture or share an appreciation video.
  • Thursday: Spirit Day: Show your love for your favorite school or sports team.
  • Friday: Pizza Day: Order pizza or make your own.

Gov. DeWine is asking everybody who participates to tag their pictures with #SpiritWeekOhio, #InThisTogetherOiho and #StayHomeOhio. The state may feature your photos on their social media platforms.
