State officials on Friday issued a new "stay safe" order that extends key portions of a stay-at-home order that expires at the end of the day.
The new directive, signed by State Health Director Dr. Amy Acton, sets new operating standards through May 29.
The order allows certain businesses to open, provided they follow recommended workplace safety precautions.
It adds that schools, bars and restaurants, appearance and beauty enterprises, child care and entertainment and gymnasiums must remain closed.
Among other things, the new order outlines operational standards for public transit and encourages those traveling from Ohio to other states to self-quarantine for 14 days following their return.
It is part of the DeWine Administration's "Responsible RestartOhio plan." READ MORE
