“Our 911 system is in place to handle urgent medical and public safety situations when every minute counts,” said Paul Hicks, the emergency services manager for the city. “Reporting the non-wearing of masks or face coverings does not rise to the level of an emergency situation, so we’re asking the public to keep that in mind as the governor’s mandate goes into effect.”
Instead, those who have questions regarding preventive measures designed to curb the spread of COVID-19 should contact the Clark County Combined Health District at 937-390-5600.
Social gatherings of 10 people or more in the state are still prohibited under DeWine’s order. However, there are several exceptions to the latest mask order.
Those include anyone with a medical condition or disability or communicating with someone with a disability; those who are exercising or playing sports; officiating a religious service; actively involved in public safety; and those who are actively eating or drinking are not required to wear a mask.
