Here is what’s reopening this week in Ohio


(WJW) – More of Ohio’s economy will begin reopening this week.

Here’s what to expect as things start to get back to business.


While many cities and municipalities opted not to open pools this summer, those who want to open are allowed starting this week.

Many employees will be wearing masks and may ask you to do so in public spaces.

Facilities are expected to create barriers for social distancing.

You’ll also see fewer lockers and showers available for use.

Gyms, dance studios, and other fitness facilities are permitted to reopen starting Tuesday, although many businesses have not announced reopening dates.

These facilities are required to limit capacity and class size for social distancing.

Many employees will be wearing face coverings.

The guidelines say clients may be asked to bring their own equipment and should not arrive early.

There will be limited locker use and restrictions on how many people can be in the bathroom at the same time.
