Ohio’s stay-at-home order has again been extended. The order now extends through 11:59 p.m. May 29, with only certain businesses allowed to remain open. The extension is nothing new. Gov. Mike DeWine announced Monday that the order will be extended as the state begins its phased reopening. However, the time frame of the extension was unknown until Thursday night.

- May 1 – Health care procedures that do not require an overnight hospital stay in Ohio can move forward
- May 4 – Manufacturing, distribution, and construction will be opened up
- May 4 – General offices will be able to reopen. Companies are asked to have employees work from home if possible
- May 12 – Retail businesses, with employees and customers wearing masks
- Businesses like salons, gyms and restaurants will have to wait to see how the first reopenings go
