If President Trump holds a political rally in Ohio, it’ll be exempt from COVID-19 restrictions.

The state mask mandate, social distancing and crowd size limits would not be enforced during a rally.

A press secretary for the Ohio Department of Health told the Sandusky

Register Tuesday that while the state is encouraging a limit of 10 people on mass gatherings, political rallies are exempt; as they are protected by the First Amendment.
