CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said he is not ready yet to publicly map out a strategy that would allow the state’s amusement parks and museums to reopen during the coronavirus emergency.

The Governor said the Travel and Tourism Advisory Board tasked with forming policies for certain attractions is still in the progress of making recommendations, but a decision could come sometime soon, DeWine said during Thursday’s briefing.

“We’re going to try to address that next week,” Gov. DeWine said about venues like Ohio’s amusement parks, museums, and zoos.
