COLUMBUS, Ohio (WJW)– Day cares across the state of Ohio will be allowed to reopen on May 31, according to Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine. The governor made the announcement on Thursday during his daily coronavirus news conference.
With about 90 percent of the state’s economy operating again, concerned parents repeatedly asked how they can return to work without childcare.
The reopening date comes with new protocols, including increased cleaning and hand washing. Classrooms will be limited to nine students for older children and six students for younger children. Education officials said parents will notice changes as soon as they arrive with childcare providers wearing masks.
