"I know how important this is as we open OH back up. We're focusing on the safety of the kids, their families, and the employees", DeWine said.

Nothing has been finalized for gyms and fitness centers, because of concerns over sanitizing, but DeWine said plans are in the works. But the governor said he won't make an announcement until the state has the "most science-based and safety-based plan that we can put together". He emphasized rules need to focus on the safety of children and their families, but must include safety protocols to protect workers.

"We will not be making an announcement today", DeWine said. We believe Ohio's child care professionals are the workforce behind the workforce. "As I have said, there is risk associated with action, and there is risk associated with inaction". But he said it's pertinent for businesses to follow guidelines as they reopen.

"Child care is an absolutely essential part of being able to go back to work", said DeWine.

Lt. Gov. Jon Husted said no one now is being denied that benefit. Over 209,000 COVID-19 tests have been administered in the Buckeye State.

While Ohio opens, Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton cautioned about maintaining social distancing and wearing face coverings.

It was the seventh of only 302 D-18Es built by Martin and was customized by Cobain who added a Bartolini pickup to the soundhole. All the items come from various people who worked with Cobain or were associated with his family, Julien's said.

The governor said OH had been "hit very hard" by the CCP virus pandemic, with more than a million people filing for unemployment. Random sampling will be done in both urban and rural areas.

Acton says the next challenge is to fast track testing, connecting test labs with the people who need it. "Reopening childcare centers is simply too important to do so without all the best information and protocols in place", he said. When the group presents recommendations, the state will move forward.

From May 12, retail and consumer services will be permitted to reopen, while hair salons, barbers, nail salons, day spas, and tanning facilities can reopen from May 15.

When questioned about other sections of the economy opening, DeWine said there are a number of advisory groups that are working to determine best practices for reopening other sectors of the economy, including tourism and travel, casino and racing, county/state fair and outdoor recreation. It's also up to individual businesses owners to decide whether customers must wear the masks inside their business.

DeWine announced that JobsOhio, the Ohio Department of Commerce, and the Ohio Liquor Control were launching a liquor rebate program so bars and restaurants can defray the costs of high proof spirited liquors.
