During a recent press conference, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced which businesses would start opening back up in the Buckeye state on May 1.

From WJW Fox 8 News Cleveland:

Those include manufacturing, distribution and office environments on May 4, and consumer, retail and services on May 12. But there is a longer list of businesses that will stay closed.

It includes a lot of activities and industries many were hoping would be up and running again.  That is not the case.

Among those that will NOT start back up during Phase I of Ohio’s reopening plan:

  • Restaurant and Bars (with the exception of carryout and delivery)
  • Business in relation to “hair salons, day spas, nail salons, barber shops, tattoo parlors, body piercing locations, tanning facilities, massage therapy locations” among others
  • Senior Citizen Centers
  • Rooming and boarding houses
  • Health clubs, fitness centers, gyms
  • Arena, stadiums, concert halls, auditoriums
  • Movie theaters and performing arts halls
  • Casinos and gambling businesses
  • Public and private swimming pools
  • “Amusement parks, theme parks, outdoor water parks, children’s play centers, playgrounds and funplexes.”
