    From the article:

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -Gov. Mike DeWine announced that all Ohio bars and restaurants are being ordered to close -- except for carryout and delivery -- at 9 p.m. Sunday.

    “What we can’t have is people congregating, and people who are sitting," he said. “So carryout is fine. And delivery is fine.”

    Ohio may be one of the first states enacting such sweeping measures to food and beverage establishments. Shortly after DeWine’s announcement, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker said they will close by the end of Monday.


    DeWine is signing an executive order to enable workers who don’t have paid leave benefits to access unemployment during the coronavirus emergency.

    “This also applies to companies that determine it’s temporarily necessary to shut down operations due to the emergency,” Lt. Gov. Jon Husted said.
