CLEVELAND — Under a new order amended by Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton, you can take to the dance floor at bars, restaurants, banquet facilities and even at weddings, as long as you maintain a safe social distance, of course.
According to an amended public health order published earlier this week, open congregate areas in restaurants, bars, banquet and catering facilities (billiards, card playing, pinball games, video games, arcade games, dancing and entertainment) are permitted to open, but businesses must follow all social distancing guidelines.
The previous wording from the June 1 order said, “The open congregate areas in restaurants, bars, and banquet and catering facilities that are not necessary for the preparation and service of food or beverages billiards, card playing, pinball games, video games, arcade games, dancing, entertainment) shall remain closed.
Live entertainment is also now permitted in bars, restaurants and banquet facilities, the order states.
Crowd sizes at banquet and catering facilities remain limited to 300 people.
