(HILL) Illinois and Ohio announced on Sunday they would close all restaurants and bars in response to the growing COVID-19 pandemic.
“We will be issuing an order closing all bars and restaurants in #Ohio beginning at 9:00 tonight,” Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine tweeted while noting that establishments would be allowed to continue carryout and delivery services.
“What we can’t have is people congregating and seated,” he said.
Shortly afterward, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker said his state also would order restaurants and bars to close to dine-in customers by the end of Monday. The closures would last from March 16 through March 30, he said.
“We are working with restaurant owners and food delivery services across the state to see if restaurants can safely keep their kitchens open, so the restaurants can continue food delivery to people at their homes,” Pritzker said at a news conference, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. READ MORE
