CLEVELAND — Former Ohio resident and actor Rob Lowe is showing his support for Ohioians during the coronavirus pandemic.

"It's time for us to stay in place, get to know our families," Lowe said in the video. While complimenting DeWine on the work he has done during the pandemic, he reiterates the importance of staying home during this crisis.
