The Governor has announced that Executive Order 2020-01D will be repealed effective June 18, 2021. This Executive Order was used to declare a state of emergency within the State of Ohio due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Following the issuance of this Executive Order, the Ohio State Cosmetology and Barber Board passed a resolution to temporarily suspend the six percent cap on web-based education on July 14, 2020. This resolution suspended the enforcement of paragraph (K)(2) of rule 4713-5-02 of the Administrative Code, increasing the maximum number of hours that may be earned through distance learning to seventy-five percent of a student’s program of study. This resolution, however, was automatically rescinded following the repeal of Executive Order 2020-01D.
Therefore, as of the end of business on June 18, 2021, this temporary resolution is no longer in effect, and students are once again be limited to twenty percent of their total hours being earned through distance learning pursuant to paragraph (K)(2) of rule 4713-5-02 of the Administrative Code.
This change will not affect any hours earned before June 18, 2021. Further guidance regarding the calculation of students total distance learning hours will be provided once available.
Effective April 12, 2021
