“We aren’t going to make them but we wish they had a higher compliance,” #Ohio #Gov. #Mike #DeWine said of the nursing home staff at a #Wednesday press briefing, The #Columbus #Dispatch reported.

“Everyone makes their own choice about this but we want to make it clear that opportunity may not come back for a while,” the governor said.
