The Forth of July will bring on a different meaning to ‘freedom’ this year as many Ohioans plan gatherings and celebrations not practical last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

After last year’s stay-at-home orders and this year’s mask mandates and social distancing guidelines, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine officially relaxed Ohio’s health order on June 2. With 16 months of coronavirus restrictions in the past, this fourth of July is a celebration of freedom and a return to normalcy.
