New Stay-at-Home Order in Place for Ohio, Includes ‘Essential’ Dispute Process

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The latest “stay at home” order took effect at midnight Monday night.

It’s in effect until May 1.

The new order continues the closure of non-essential businesses, but adds a requirement that essential stores establish a maximum occupancy number that they adhere to.

Those “snowbirds” and other vacationers returning to Ohio are being required to self-quarantine for two weeks.

There’s also language addressing wedding receptions which are limited to 10 people.

A dispute resolution process where one business may be judged essential in one county but not in another can be straightened out.

Business owners will need to fill out and email a dispute resolution form.
