COLUMBUS, OH - Ohio Governor Mike DeWine says wearing masks in public during the coronavirus should not be a political issue, but instead he said “it’s about people acting to protect others”.
The Ohio governor was on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday in response to North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum’s call for residents to avoid mask shaming people wearing protective gear. Burgum, a Republican and Trump supporter, said people with masks deserve support and encouragement since they may be protecting someone vulnerable to the virus.
DeWine called those comments “spot on”, adding there is no place for politics in the discussion. He said wearing a mask is about public health.
