Ohio bars, restaurants, fitness centers will not be ordered closed this week, Gov. Mike DeWine says – cleveland.com

COLUMBUS, OhioGov. Mike DeWine said Tuesday that, as hes ordering a three-week coronavirus curfew, he will not follow through on his threat to close bars, restaurants, and fitness centers in the state if cases of the virus continue to spike.

We think that we can accomplish, frankly, a lot more by having this curfew than we could at closing one or two different business sectors, the governor said during a televised coronavirus briefing.

DeWine said last Thursday that if the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases continues to increase for another week, he would order the closure of restaurants, bars, and fitness centers, just as he did for several weeks last spring.

Instead, on Tuesday, the governor announced that Ohioans, with some exceptions, will be under a curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. for three weeks beginning Thursday. The move comes as the number of daily reported coronavirus cases in Ohio has risen from about 1,000 in October to 7,000-8,000 in the past week.

The governor said after he issued his warning about closing bars, restaurants, and fitness centers, he received some amazingly compelling emails from food-service workers, We do listen, DeWine said.

John Barker, president and CEO of the Ohio Restaurant Association, said during the governors briefing that his organization backs the curfew.

We think its the right step at the right time. Its going to allow Ohioans to do their part without having what we thought would be an immediate and disastrous impact on restaurants and thousands of employees, Barker said.
