Ohio’s Guidelines for Reopening The State

Ohio’s Guidelines for Reopening The State

Reopening Ohio

Yesterday Governor Mike DeWine had a press conference to discuss reopening the state.

On May 4, manufacturing, distribution and construction operations will be allowed to resume with strict safety instructions in place. That same day, general offices can resume operations, but DeWine strongly emphasized that those who can work from home are encouraged to continue doing so.

On May 12, consumer retail and services can resume as long as facial coverings are worn by employees — with customers strongly urged to do the same.

No decision has been made yet, DeWine said, on the timetable for reopening restaurants, bars, barbershops, hair salons and day care. Also on the list of places that remain closed for now are gyms, movie theaters, casinos as well as other services and recreational sites that bring people together in close settings. School buildings already have been ordered to stay closed for the remainder of the academic year.
