News

OHIO (WJW) — Another round of Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine’s Responsible Restart Ohio plan begins Monday.

DeWine is urging as many people as possible to work from home, but many will return to work under new requirements and guidelines.

Businesses reopening today include:

— General office workplaces
— Manufacturing
— Distribution
— Construction

Businesses can reopen if they meet state requirements, including wearing masks, staying six feet away from one another, sanitizing their workplaces and doing daily symptom checks.

May 1, health care providers, dentists and veterinarians, were permitted to reopen.

On May 12, consumer and retail services can reopen.
