Ohio Governor Mike DeWine says casinos, amusement parks and racetracks will be allowed to reopen June 19.  

The annual Memorial golf tournament in Dublin was approved to take place in mid-July. DeWine says outdoor theaters in the state will also be allowed to reopen once they submit a plan as other businesses have done.

The state health department announced that as of Friday, Ohio has recorded nearly 37,800 confirmed or probable coronavirus cases, with 2,355 confirmed or probable COVID-19 deaths. The state saw nearly 500 new cases of the virus as the death count rose by 16 since Thursday.
