  • Approves $1.3 billion for employers

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has told Ohioans to look forward to programs that will use CARES Act funding to create a wide-ranging program to address the needs of struggling Ohioans, including funding for rent, mortgages, and water and sewer utility bills, as well as funding for small businesses and nonprofits.

“On August 20th, I asked Ohio Bureau for Workers’ Compensation’s Board of Directors to approve a second dividend for public and private employers as financial support during the ongoing pandemic,” said Governor Mike DeWine.

“These checks – totaling around $1.3 billion – will be mailed to employers beginning this week.

These checks will be mailed to employers throughout the end of October. So, employers, please check your mail for an envelope like this which contains your check.  These checks will not be directly deposited into any bank accounts.”

On Flu and COVID, Governor DeWine advised Ohioans to “get your flu shot. You can have both viruses at the same time, and we want to do everything we can to avoid that. Some symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, but here are the key differences that you should know.”

“I want to especially encourage college students to get a flu shot. Flu shots are available at your doctor’s office, retail pharmacies, urgent care clinics, student health centers, and at drive-through and curbside flu clinics.”
