DeWine has no plans to lift the Ohio mask warrant, an official said. The states currently on the travel advisory are South Dakota, Kansas, Iowa, Idaho and Alabama, all of which report a positive test rate of 15% or more. South Dakota and Idaho are tied for the highest percentage of positive cases at 24%. An accurate positivity rate could not be calculated from Oregon, Texas, Kentucky, or Mississippi.
