"This is an attempt to make sure everyone understands that we cannot be gathered together," DeWine said. "We cannot be in close proximity to eachother."

DeWine read from the order, which states, in part:

"Mass gatherings are prohibited in the state of Ohio.

Mass gatherings are defined as any event or convene that brings together 100 more people in the same space or room at the same time, such as an auditorium, a stadium, an arena, large conference room, meeting hall, theater, or any other confined any indoor or outdoor space.

This would also certainly include parades, fairs, and festivals.

For the purpose of clarity, a mass gathering does not include normal operations at airports, bus and train stations, medical facilities, libraries, shopping malls, centers, or other spaces where 100 or more persons may be in transit.

It also does not include typical office environments, schools, factories, restaurants, or retail or grocery stores where large numbers of people are present. But it is unusual for them to be within arm’s length of one another.

A mass gathering also does not include athletic events that exclude spectators. Athletic and other events do not need to be canceled or postponed if spectators and other attendees are excluded. The order does not apply to or exclude immediate family members of participants in the athletic or other events as well as anyone necessary for the event to take place. The order does not exclude the media.

The order does not apply to religious gatherings, gatherings for the purpose of First Amendment protected speech, weddings or funerals."

We should all give lots of appreciation (but not hugs for now) to the directors of the Marathon.
In these times of stress and tension, dealing with a unique situation, in their continuing endeavor to bring us a quality entertainment, we should offer thanks that they now and in the future deal with the minutia and crap required to produce a quality product and deal with situations that are beyond their control.
Whatever your politics or whatever you may prize in the world we can come to Columbus, previously and on a future date to be determined, to sit in an auditorium filled with smelly people to enjoy a once in a year extravaganza that has little to do with the stresses of regular life.
They get the stresses. We get the entertainment.
Thank you.
