Last week, Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton announced her resignation. Lance Himes will serve as interim director until Acton’s replacement is found. Acton will continue to work with Gov. Mike DeWine as his chief health advisor.

The governor also announced last week that the state is lifting restrictions from coronavirus testing. Previously, a physician’s order was required to be tested for the virus because testing was limited. Now, the test is available for anyone who is interested in being tested.
