Governor: Ohio reopening a 'balancing' act, with monitoring

COLUMBUS, May 3, 2020 (AP): Reopening Ohio is a ``balancing`` act between bringing the economy back while protecting people, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said Sunday, noting that he will be prepared to take action should the situation worsen again.

State officials are monitoring the data on coronavirus in Ohio ``every single day,`` DeWine said Sunday on ABC's ``This Week.``

On Friday, the governor extended the state shutdown until May 29 while also allowing retail stores to expand their business earlier than expected. He spoke as Ohio COVID-19 deaths topped 1,000 for the first time and as dozens of protesters of Ohio's stay-at-home orders returned to the statehouse.

Construction companies, distributors, manufacturers and offices are allowed to reopen Monday, and retail businesses on May 12. Health care offices were allowed to reopen Friday. Bars and movie theaters remain closed, along with in-person dining at restaurants. Sporting events and concerts are still prohibited.

The governor earlier said multiple working groups were being formed to come up with the best and safest way to restart activities, including hair care, dining out, going to the gym, visiting libraries and participating in sporting events.

``So when we open tomorrow in regard to a lot of businesses as well as office, it's going to be based upon really best practices that were laid out by people in those businesses who do that,`` he said Sunday.

DeWine issued an order for people to wear face coverings in stores but quickly reversed himself, calling it a strong recommendation but not a requirement. He said Sunday the order ``went too far`` because ``people were not going to accept the government telling them what to do.``
