As cases of coronavirus pandemic continue to increase in Ohio State, Governor Mike DeWine has announced one week of monitoring the activities of restaurants, bars and fitness centers to decide whether they continued to stay open or be closed.
“If the current trend continues and cases keep increasing, we will be forced to close restaurants, bars, and fitness centers. We will look at this one week from tomorrow,” said Governor Mike DeWine.
“Throughout history, each generation has faced challenges. Americans have been asked to lay down their lives so that our nation might live. Today, we all must do something far less dramatic – wear a mask so that your friends, neighbors, and family members might live”.
“I am very well aware of the burden this will place on employees and the owners. But these are places where it is difficult or impossible to maintain mask-wearing, which we know now is the chief way of slowing this virus.”
