These businesses will open, but things like “no gatherings more than 10 people” will remain.

The following types of establishments are ordered to remain closed due to their increased risk of potential COVID-19 exposure:
• Schools and daycares
• Dine-in restaurants and bars (carry-out is still permitted)
• Personal appearance and beauty businesses
• Older adult daycare serveries and senior centers
• Adult day support or vocational rehabilitation services in group settings
• Entertainment, recreation, and gyms

Because the danger of COVID-19 still exists, Ohio’s Stay at Home order will remain in effect to encourage Ohioans to continue making reasonable, rational decisions about leaving home. Although anyone is susceptible to getting sick with COVID-19, those who are 65 or older are encouraged to be especially careful, as are those with high-risk conditions such as chronic lung disease, moderate to severe asthma, heart conditions, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, or liver disease, as well as those who are immunocompromised or obese.
Large gatherings of more than 10 people are still prohibited.
