Watch: Ohio University Marching 110 performs stay-at-home version of fight song

In a video shared by Governor Mike DeWine, the Ohio University Marching 110 honored first responders during the state's battle with the coronavirus.

With a stay-at-home order in place as Ohio continues to battle the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Ohio University Marching 110 has been unable to perform together in-person.

That, however, hasn't stopped the pride of the Bobcats from making music.

In a video shared by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine on Tuesday, members of the Marching 110 can be seen simultaneously performing their fight song, "Stand Up and Cheer," despite each member successfully practicing safe social distancing.

DeWine said that the performance -- which was originally posted to YouTube on Monday -- was dedicated to all of the healthcare workers and first responders across Ohio.

As of Tuesday, Ohio has had 2,199 confirmed coronavirus cases, 585 of which have resulted in hospitalization, 198 ICU admissions and 55 deaths. Dating back to the discovery of the state's first positive coronavirus case on March 9, DeWine has taken a number of measures to encourage social distancing, including issuing a stay-at home order across the state set to last through at least April 6. 

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Ohio University has moved to remote and online instruction through the end of spring semester. The university's commencement ceremony has been postponed to a later date.
