Ohio Governor Mike DeWine says the state's stay-at-home order that was set to expire today will be extended until May 29.

DeWine says there are exceptions, like the already announced dates for re-opening of manufacturing plants and retail stores.  DeWine says he will provide more details during his daily press briefing this afternoon. State health officials say there are now just over 18 thousand confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19 with 975 fatalities.
