COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) _ Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine has announced a change to state policy regarding quarantining after exposure to COVID-19.

The governor says the rising number of vaccinations means fully vaccinated Ohioans must no longer quarantine themselves if they’re exposed to someone with the coronavirus.

The Republican governor says the change also means teens who are vaccinated can participate in sports and other activities even after exposure.

DeWine says the change applies to all adults except those in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or other group care settings. The Ohio Health Department says four of every 10 people have received at least one vaccine dose.
