COLUMBUS -- Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine on Thursday announced the reopening of certain facilities, including certain entertainment venues, with health and safety restrictions.

“As I’ve said, Ohioans are able to do two things at once. We can continue to limit the spread of COVID-19 while we safely reopen our economy. It is up to each of us to do what we can to keep each other safe and choose to keep six feet of social distance, wear masks, and maintain good hand hygiene,” DeWine said.

“The threat of COVID-19 remains and while it’s our responsibility to keep each other safe, business owners and employees should do their part to ensure customers visit safely, by cleaning and sanitizing surfaces regularly," DeWine said.

Day camps and residential camps may open at any time.
