The Columbus community has been able to safely reopen amidst the COVID-19 pandemic by ensuring proper health and safety protocols are in place, including a citywide mask mandate. Currently, a statewide curfew is in effect from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Saturday, Jan. 23 to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The Franklin County stay-at-home advisory, also in effect until Jan. 23, asks citizens not to leave their residences or travel outside of Ohio unless it is absolutely necessary.
