CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - There are a lot of changes coming to Ohio, as Governor Mike DeWine shuts down all non-essential businesses and limits day cares.

Day cares are not a part of the lockdown, but there are a lot of changes.

Below is everything you need to know about the changes in day care programs:

  • Only six children allowed per classroom in each day care.
  • Day cares need to operate under a temporary pandemic childcare license.
  • Shared spaces must have a rigorous cleaning schedule.
  • Parent drop off interaction will be limited.

The following changes are expected to heavily affect how day care businesses will operate.

The changes will go into place Thursday and will last until April 30.
