Governor does not provide dates: Wedding Venue industry in trouble?
Large wedding venues like Ohio, which can hold more than 1000 people, closed in March, the same day when the Arnold Sports Classic was closed to spectators.
General Manager Hank Straty exclaimed that everything stopped immediately.
Dr Amy Acton, Ohio’s Health director, gave a mandatory health order that prohibits any event or gathering that brings 50 or more people in a single room or other indoor or outdoor place at the same time. The order remains in effect until the Governor Mike De Wine’s State of Emergency prevails. Henceforth, President Trump declared no get-togethers of more than ten people. This order has led to a temporary downfall in the wedding industry’s economy.
The manager says they see other businesses resuming; they to want to comply, but there is no communication.
The Ohio Governor told that he is concerned about social distancing; some caterers say that they can comply with the limitations just like restaurants. DeWine also said that he was not ready to give out any date to confirm when the receptions could begin, but if bars can restart, even halls can resume. In a bar, many people standing in groups is a concern, and that is the reason behind booked table compulsion.
Straty informed that they are quite a large venue wherein they can accommodate a lot more than just ten people, maintaining social distancing.
