COLUMBUS, Ohio — Gov. Mike DeWine ordered the closure of more customer-facing businesses Wednesday, including nail salons, hairdressers and barbershops, and emphasized again the need to conserve COVID-19 tests for the people who need them most: The elderly, the immunocompromised and those exhibiting the most severe symptoms.

Most people who begin to experience symptoms do not need a test, he said. They need to stay at home and obey social-distancing instructions. In order to conserve personal protective equipment and the safety of healthcare workers, only patients who are members of at-risk groups should seek hospital treatment and testing.
