The state is allowing retailers to once again sell buffet style and to-go self-serve food items. 

Ohio Public Radio's  Jo Ingles reports. 

Buffet style items….you know….the cookies in the clear cases at convenience stores, the steaming hot dogs on rollers at the gas station….well, they can come back now. 

The state has issued an order allowing gas stations and convenience stores to put out those items again. Their rules will be much the same as for most caterers, restaurants and reception venues that have already been allowed to resume business - which mean required face masks for employees and customers, more cleaning and sanitizing, safe distancing and policies that keep sick employees home and away from the food.
