CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - While some businesses across Ohio are closing, on a temporary or permanent due to Gov. Mike DeWine’s ordered closures for health reasons, other companies are actually increasing its workforce.

Lt. Gov. John Husted said Amazon is looking to hire thousands of workers in Ohio to keep up with the surge of orders being made as more consumers purchase online instead of shopping in stores as coronavirus spreads.

Amazon jobs that need to be filled include warehouse and delivery positions.
