OHIO – Dewine says that you shouldn’t read too much into the expiration date on the Stay-at-Home order.
“Not knowing where this virus is going, and what it will do when we open things up,” said Dewine.
Dewine says that hairdressers will find to when they could open next week, restaurants will find out when they can have people inside.
“The key is best practices to keep the virus contained,” said Dewine, “we don’t know where we are going to be in August to make a prediction on what it looks like.”
Dewine says that we will slowly open throughout the month they will be watching testing, and making decisions on what they see.
To businesses that are planning to open prior to May 12: We're trying to phase openings in. We're trying to continue to buy us some time so that we don't have the curve going straight up again. We would say if you open up early, it's a mistake. We hope people will follow the law.
