Barriers go up to allow outdoor dining along Vine Street in Over-the-Rhine.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has begun allowing restaurants that meet certain guidelines to reopen for dine-in service as of May 21. Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the reopening are Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment CEO Britney Ruby Miller; and Frisch’s Big Boy President and CEO Jason Vaughn.

Plus, the city of Cincinnati has begun closing parts of 25 streets in Over-the-Rhine and Downtown to make room for more outdoor seating at local restaurants. We'll discuss the restaurants who are now offering expanded outdoor dining and when other neighborhoods could see this option with Assistant to the City Manager Kelly Carr; and Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC) Director of Communication Joe Rudemiller.

And University Hospitals of Cleveland releases its "Healthy Restart Playbook" with tips for businesses on safely reopening. We'll discuss with University Hospitals pediatric critical care physician and Medical Director of the Pediatric Sedation Unit Joan Zoltanski, MD.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
