Gov. Mike DeWine announced Thursday his plan to reopen more Ohio businesses.

Hair and nail salons and day spas may open May 15; bars and restaurants in Ohio can open for outside dining May 15 and inside dining May 21.

Restaurants will be required to seat groups of 10 or less in compliance with social distancing guidelines. Customers will be asked to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms.

“You might be asked to wear a mask, and that’s going to be at the discretion of the owners,” said Treva Weaver, member of the state restaurant working group and owner of Zoup! Eatery.

Open congregate areas will remain closed. Spaces such as dance floors can be used for socially distanced eating.

Recommendations for reopening these types of businesses will be posted to the Ohio Department of Health’s website.

“I want to thank the working group. We had barbers, we had hairstylists, people from all over the state of Ohio who wrote these recommendations,” said DeWine.
