State Orders Closure Of Health Clubs, Entertainment Venues Amid Covid-19 Pandemic

Health clubs and entertainment facilities have been ordered to shut down because of concerns about the spread of coronavirus. 

Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles has details.

Governor Mike DeWine says it is necessary to close public facilities where coronavirus can be spread. So they are the latest to be closed by a public order.

“Fitness centers and our gyms, bowling alleys and our public rec centers, movie theaters, most of them have already closed, water parks and indoor trampoline parks.”


The state is giving some help to businesses that are affected by the closure and many of the employees who will be out of work because of this order can get state unemployment benefits as well.
