The reason?  Not suprisingly, it’s all of the concerns involving the coronavirus disease.

From WKYC 3News Cleveland:

While DeWine can’t issue an order to make the delay happen — as he has done to close restaurants, gyms and movie theaters — he said he will file a lawsuit in an effort to make it happen. The lawsuit will be submitted to a judge for consideration on Monday afternoon.

This comes on top of Gov. DeWine issuing orders that restrict mass gatherings on more than 100 before changing it to 50, indefinitely closing gyms, movie theaters, bowling alleys, and indoor water parks among others, and not to mention restricting restaurant and bars to carryout and delivery only with the dining in portion closed.

Ohio currently has 50 cases of COVID-19, with 14 hospitalized.
