Stay-at-home extended until May 1

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Non-essential businesses will stay closed and Ohioans will be required to stay home until at least May 1, Gov. Mike DeWine announced Thursday afternoon. His first stay-at-home order would have expired at midnight April 6 — long before the anticipated peak of COVID-19 cases in the state began.

For the first time Thursday, DeWine gave a concrete date range for when he and Ohio Department of Health director Amy Acton expect the novel coronavirus to hit hardest: Between April 15 and May 15.
