Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine says Ohio will begin to reopen after coronavirus May 1

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine plans to begin reopening Ohio on May 1, he said Thursday.

Ohioans will have to live with the threat of coronavirus until a vaccine is developed, he said. But he must restart the economy to bring jobs back and decrease the chance of other health issues, such as drug abuse and homelessness.

“We must get this right. If we do not do this right, the consequences are horrendous,” he said.

DeWine — whose stay-at-home order expires May 1 — said he received a verbal update on a plan from a task force to reopen the state. That includes safeguards for companies where employees will return to work, including taking temperatures, wearing masks, wiping surfaces and more, at both offices and stores.
