Stay At Home Extended

Ohio’s stay-at-home and essential businesses order has been extended to May 1, with a significant change for retail businesses, to go into effect on Monday. The order will require retail businesses to self-determine a max occupancy for their buildings, post it, and enforce it. This, in response to complaints over some retail outlets being overcrowded. The governor also asked retail business owners to allow their employees, at greater risk of exposure, to wear masks, if they desire, as well. Now, those traveling into Ohio from elsewhere are being asked to self-quarantine for 14 days, with the notable exception of those who live close to state borders. Health officials say Ohio might hit its peak with the coronavirus between April 15 and May 15, based off current information. They add that could change. The governor thanked Ohioans for their efforts thus far in curtailing the spread of the virus.
