Phase 1C includes those with Type 1 diabetes or ALS; pregnant women; and those who have had a bone marrow transplant. Additionally, residents working in childcare, funeral services, and law enforcement and corrections also will become available. Ohio is also expanding to Phase 2 to people age 60 and older.
