After discussing the idea during a tv interview, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced on social media that an official order will be occuring tonight at 9pm to shutter all bars and restaurants in the State of Ohio. The closure is the latest tactic to slow the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Restaurants will still be allowed to serve customers who are ordering carry-out, drive-through or food delivery.

“I’m aware that this will impact many, many good workers,” stated DeWine in a followup on Twitter. “I can’t tell you how sorry I am, but we will work to mitigate the suffering. It is our goal for everyone to get through this.”

As of 4pm today there are 37 positive cases for Coronavirus in the State of Ohio.

This is an ongoing story and more information will be updated here as it becomes available.
