Is a new round of business closings and curtailments ahead for us in Ohio? A lot of people seem to think so. Governor Mike DeWine said last week that he would evaluate statistics concerning the spread of the Coronavirus this Wednesday before deciding whether to order a new shut down, and there’s nothing in the numbers whatsoever to indicate anything but a continuing rise in case numbers across Ohio. The issue is a complicated one. Any new shut down will surely cause further damage to the Ohio economy and could result in a new round of permanent closings for bars, restaurants and other businesses who’s owners are already having trouble making ends meet. A new set of pandemic related restrictions to take effect in Michigan this Wednesday will close the Michigan’s casinos and gym exercise classes, will limit bars and restaurants to offering carry out or curbside pick up service And will ban in-person learning in all Michigan schools for 3 weeks. However the order from governor Gretchen Whitmer will allow college and professional sporting events to go on as scheduled. Will something be similar in our future here in Ohio? Like so many other things in this covid19 dominated year, we will all just have to wait and see. That’s the way I see it.
