DeWine said expert projections suggest the virus spread may not peak until late April or May.
“We’ve informed the superintendents that while we closed school for three weeks, that the odds are, this is going to go on a lot longer, and it would not surprise me at all if the schools did not reopen again this year,” the governor said.
In addition, DeWine on Sunday ordered all bars and the dine-in service at all Ohio restaurants to cease operations as of 9 p.m. Sunday night, March 15. Carryout and delivery services will still be allowed.
