Even though there has been a decrease in the number of cases in Ohio, officials are still trying to make sure that medical facilities work properly.
Gov. Mike DeWine signed an executive order on Friday, March 18, that would set rules for how quickly and efficiently COVID-19 relief funds would be sent to medical facilities that care for people with intellectual disabilities, according to a statement from DeWine’s office.
According to the statement, hospice providers, nursing homes, and intermediate care facilities are among the facilities covered by this order.
The money will be granted as part of Executive Order 2022-03D. To read the whole order, please visit this page.
