Governor DeWine today unveiled a new case demographics dashboard on coronavirus.ohio.gov.
The new dashboard gives citizens access to COVID-19 case data by race or ethnicity. The data can be broken down by age and county and compared to the overall Ohio population.
Governor DeWine today encouraged Ohioans to answer the call if contacted by a contact tracer.
FACE MASK DONATION
Lt. Governor Husted announced that Ford is donating 2 million medical grade face masks to the state of Ohio for healthcare providers, first responders, underserved populations, and senior living communities. The donation is part of the Ford Fund's commitment of 100 million medical-grade face masks through 2021.
On Monday, September 14, 2020, the Ohio Department of Administrative Services sent voter registration forms to 59,000 individuals who previously requested these forms through the Ohio Benefits system but had not yet received them due to a system error.

Lt. Governor Husted also recognized National Small Business Week, which celebrates America's entrepreneurs and small business owners. Ohio is home to more than 965,000 small businesses that account for 99.6 percent of the businesses in the state.
