The Ohio Department of Health issued a Director’s Order to close all bars and restaurants to in-house patrons.  Restaurants with take-out and delivery options are still permitted to operate those services.  Employees who are not offered paid leave through their job, as well as those who have been quarantined by a medical professional, their employer, or whose employers must temporarily close may qualify for unemployment compensation under Governor DeWine’s executive order for enhanced unemployment aid for Ohioans.

In order to help small businesses, the Ohio Development Services Agency is preparing to submit an application in the coming week to qualify Ohio for the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program. This program provides low-interest loans up to $2 million in order to help businesses overcome the temporary loss of revenue during the state of emergency.

In order to complete the state’s application, businesses impacted by the current public health crisis should immediately send their contact information to [email protected]<mailto:[email protected]>. Additional information on the SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program is available at SBA.gov/Disaster.
