Reopening Ohio: On May 19, Governor DeWine announced that an urgent health advisory, named Ohioans Protecting Ohioans, will replace the current public health orders. This lifts many of the mandatory restrictions on the general public, but keeps in place the recently published sector-specific requirements for businesses and employers. The order does not change the mass gathering restrictions, which remain at a 10-person limit. The Governor also announced that all travel for healthy persons either within or out of state is now permitted, but discouraged. The 14-day quarantine requirement after travel has also been removed.
