Hospitalizations Down, State Lets Up on Overnight Curfew

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Bars and restaurants will be able to stay open until 11 p.m. for two weeks, starting Thursday night.

Governor Mike DeWine says the number of active hospitalizations for COVID-19 has gone down enough to allow that extra hour of business.

The governor says even though the hospitalization numbers are lower, they’re still too high.

A continued drop in those numbers means further reduction of curfew time.
