Retail Businesses Reopen; Governor Delays Daycare Reopening Plan


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--While retail establishments get the green light to reopen on Tuesday, Ohio's daycare centers are still waiting on orders from the Governor on how to operate when they are allowed to reopen.

Governor Mike DeWine Monday said officials need to do more research on best practices for the facilities to operate. DeWine says it will be science-based and not based on any date on the calendar.

The delay comes as more parents of young children across Ohio return to work, as retail establishments are permitted to reopen.

When the stay-at-home orders were implemented in March, daycare facilities needed a special permit to continue operating. They could not have more than six children per supervisor.
