Cleveland (WJW) — A three-night, three-week curfew says Cleveland’s bars and restaurants are already affected. Ohio residents are required to stay home after 10 pm unless something is essential or an emergency.
Dominique Fanelli, owner of the Euclid Avenue chocolate bar in downtown Cleveland, said: “Thursday and last night sales were 50% of what they were a week ago.
He states that the curfew across Ohio shows immediate financial implications for some restaurants.
Governor Mike DeWine said on Tuesday when he announced a curfew, “On the 21st, three weeks, at 10 pm, retail stores will be closed and people will have to go home.”
The curfew came into effect on Thursdays from 10 pm to 5 am. DeWine states that it is possible to slow down the state and prevent it from shutting down in order to slow the exponential spread of COVID-19.
The curfew includes exceptions such as getting in and out of work, getting groceries, and taking food home.
“We left our patrons by 9:45 tonight, so they could get home by 10 o’clock, offer takeaway after 10 o’clock, and the downtown streets of Cleveland were completely empty. It was, “Fanelli said. ..
“There can be 1,000 or 2,000 incidents a day in the coming weeks. What is certain is that the number of incidents will skyrocket and the train will have to slow down to save lives.” , Kaiyahoga County Health Commissioner Terry Alan said in a virtual Friday. News briefing.
“We must act the same as in the face of a life-threatening emergency,” said Almond Budish, executive of Kaiyahoga County, at the same briefing.
Curfew has come into effect in Cleveland and Kaiyahoga County, as well as in many jurisdictions in northeastern Ohio. Authorities are urging people to leave home only for essential reasons or for emergencies, rather than gathering in groups other than their immediate family.
“If we don’t do these things, and if we don’t follow the guidance of our health committee, suffering and death will increase incredibly,” Badish said.
Many restaurant owners say curfew is better than a complete closure. They also require people to follow health guidelines to control the virus, not only to save lives, but also to save their lives.
“We have to get over this … every company, restaurant and bar has to get over this,” Fanelli said.
Dominique Fanelli says the chocolate bar will provide flu shots to all employees next week. Health officials are urging everyone to get a flu shot this season as another way to ease the already tense health care system.
