Fans will once again be able to dine at Ohio State athletic events this week.

Starting with the men's basketball team's Thursday matchup with Iowa, scheduled for an 8 p.m. tip-off at the Schottenstein Center, concession stands will reopen to the public, according to a university release Monday.

"We appreciate fans’ commitment to mask-wearing and ask that you keep up the good work," the release states in part.

Ohio State closed concessions at all athletic events on Jan. 4 due to COVID-19 concerns, with water being the only substance available to attendees.

The men's basketball team saw three games canceled during the month of December due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the program, which led to a 22-day hiatus in game action for the Buckeyes. Ohio State also saw its scheduled Jan. 22 meeting with Nebraska postponed due to COVID-19 issues in the Husker program.

But Ohio State has now opted to relax some of its on-campus restrictions, citing in the aforementioned release that "your efforts paid off" in limiting the spread of COVID-19 in recent weeks.

The full concessions menu will be available at Ohio State athletic events later in February.
