All dine-in bar and restaurants ordered shut down as of 9PM Sunday. Carry out and delivery is still permitted. Governor Mike DeWine calling it a matter of life and death. The State is also going to offer some new Unemployment assistance to help mitigate the effect it will have on business throughout the state. DeWine says he know there will be suffering caused by this order, but they are trying to save lives.

Dr. Amy Acton, who heads the Ohio Department of Health says that so far they have tracked 36 positive cases, 350 cases are under investigation, and many, many others are already infected. 11 people are hospitalized so far. Testing is lagging, so she calls what they know so far is just the tip of the iceberg. "Timing is everything, and everything matters."
