Additionally, Governor DeWine announced the resignation of Dr. Amy Acton, who led all recommendations over the past several months for Ohio's social distancing guidelines and shut down over the economy across the state.

Acton's actions saved potentially hundreds of thousands from contracting COVID-19.

DeWine announced that Acton will stay on his staff in a different role, as Chief Health Advisor, rather than the head of the Ohio Department of Health.
