COLUMBUS, OH (WOWK) – Ohio Governor Mike DeWine advises all indoor sporting events to eliminate spectators in an attempt to control the spread of COVID-19.

DeWine said he also advised Ohio colleges and universities to cancel face-to-face classes and use remote learning.

He says schools should stop all school-sanctioned international travel. All those who have traveled internationally recently, or spent their Spring Break on a cruise ship, should be evaluated.

The governor does not call for K-12 schools to close at this time but says it could be a possibility in the future.
