Those of us who are dreaming of a life that returns to anything like normal as we deal with a 10-month old pandemic can take some encouragement in word that came from Columbus yesterday that if a current decline in coronavirus related hospitalizations in Ohio continues, Ohio’s existing 10:00 P.M. to 5:00 a.m. curfew could be modified to allow bars and restaurants to stay open until 11:00 P.M. as early as tomorrow, and that further declines could some day result in elimination of the curfew altogether. What we haven’t heard much about at all is any kind of potential time table for modification or removal of another Ohio Health Department mandate that’s been damaging to hundreds of bars and restaurants in Ohio since last March. That’s the limits that exist on the number of dine-in customers permitted at any one time. That mandate has resulted in the closing of a host of bars and restaurants and has others just barely surviving .Many have seen stats that show that it is not bars and restaurants which have been responsible for the waive in virus cases and wonder if or when they will be able to return to real profitability. That’s the way I see it.
