Coronavirus Locks Down Ohio
"Ohio Department of Health issues Stay At Home Order for all Ohio" by NBC4 Columbus
Ohio on Lockdown
Ohio is now on lockdown.
Ordered everyone to stay at home. We are to shelter in place.
This order is effective through April 6, 2020. Then it will be reevaluated.
No More Social Distancing
Gone are the days of social distancing, where we were told to stay at least 6 feet away from others.
I am only to leave house for essentials. Like a trip to the grocery store that has select hours, which right now is useless.
There is not much stock on the shelves. There is still no toilet paper or potatoes. Those necessary items.
Parks Closed For Dogs and People
If you have a dog you can still walk him, but the dog parks are closed. (Our little town only has one)
This counts me out because I do not have a dog.
I am told I can walk outside in my own yard.
Our parks are municipal parks and will be closed. They are taking no chances due to the parks having playgrounds, so gone are the days of getting a bit of fresh air while walking there.
No Contact With Others
I am not to drive across town to just take a drive. Only trips like hospital or doctor’s office are allowed.
The nursing homes and hospitals have already been on lockdown. No visitors allowed. At least the patients have contact with workers.
A person living alone will not have this luxury. No human contact.
My Imagination Will Get Me Through
I know, it’s to help contain the coronavirus, but this is definitely not sitting well with me.
The panic in my town is already bad and this is making it worse.
Neighbors hide inside their homes. Too afraid to talk to anyone.
Thank God, I have a vivid imagination. I will be using it a lot more in the days to follow.
