Gov. DeWine: Mask-Wearing ‘Is Not About Politics … It’s About Helping Other People’

‘This is not about whether you’re liberal or conservative, left or right’


DEWINE: “Well, the governor is right. The governor is spot on. I’ve watched that clip a couple times. And this is not about politics. This is not about whether you’re liberal or conservative, left or right, Republican, Democrat. We wear the mask, and it’s been very clear what the studies have shown. You wear the mask not to protect yourself so much as to protect others. And this is one time when we truly are all in this together. What we do directly impacts others. And we’re not saying if you’re in a car, you’re driving by yourself, you don’t have to wear a mask. You don’t have to wear a mask if you’re out, you know, away from people, hiking or doing all kinds of different things, or in your own house. But when you go out and interact directly with people, we’re asking Ohioans to do this. And so, it doesn’t — it’s not about politics. It’s not about conservative or liberal. It’s about helping other people.”
