OHIO, USA — Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced Sunday that he is issuing an order to close all Ohio bars and restaurants due to concerns surrounding the spread of coronavirus(COVID-19).
Starting at 9 p.m. Sunday evening, businesses will only be able to offer carry-out and delivery services. Patrons will be unable to be seated or congregate.
The decision comes after DeWine says he received pictures and correspondence from concerned citizens about the amount of people inside of establishments Saturday night.
