COVID-19 State Updates: March 20


Everything you and your business need to know about the state's coronavirus response efforts for March 20, 2020.


  • The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) said in its daily coronavirus update that it had confirmed 119 cases, up from 88 Wednesday, with cases reaching 24 counties and resulting in 33 hospitalizations.


  • Ohio Senate Minority Leader Yuko stated, “We are working on legislation that will help Ohioans get through this time. We are looking forward to working across the aisle to get relief to Ohioans as soon as possible.”


  • Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder sent a memo to House members Thursday saying lawmakers are working with Governor DeWine on a number of items "that should be addressed next week in order to better assist local, county and state government on issues related to the coronavirus."


  • BWC Administrator/CEO Stephanie McCloud stated yesterday that the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation is working to relax as many standards as they can, including certain employer deadlines, to provide businesses with “grace periods” due to coronavirus.




  • Governor DeWine announced that he has signed an executive order to expand and enhance telehealth options for Ohio Medicaid recipients and their providers amid the coronavirus outbreak. These rules relax regulations to allow recipients to safely access health care providers from their homes, thereby reducing the risk of COVID-19 infection for patients, families, and health care workers.
