Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced there would be no news briefing Saturday or Sunday unless there was a big announcement.

During Friday’s news briefing, Governor DeWine about his plan to reopen businesses in the state by stating there are three conditions that must be met in order for the economic restart to begin: Public health measures and compliance must be established, people most vulnerable to the disease must be protected, and businesses operate safely with safeguards in place.
