Ohio Bars And Restaurants To Close Per Governor's Order
Monday, March 16, 2020

As of 9 P.M. last night, all bars and restaurants in Ohio will be closed until further notice in an order issued by Buckeye State Governor, Republican Mike DeWine who is taking a tough stance on trying to stem the coronavirus.

DeWine stated, “If we don’t take these actions now, it’ll be too late in what he called “very drastic action” that was prompted by concerns from around the state about crowded bars.

DeWine said takeout and delivery would still be allowed. He also did say he understood the impact on small businesses and steps would be taken to mitigate the suffering.

The governor said earlier in the day that it was possible that Ohio schools may be closed for the rest of the academic year.
