COVID-19 Travel Alerts

Capitalizing on Columbus’ strengths as a forward-thinking city, we continue to “Live Forward” to help rebuild Columbus’ economy and support the local community during the COVID-19 crisis. Though many events have been cancelled, Ohio has slowly begun the process to reopen doctor’s offices, retail shops, restaurants and bars, salons and general businesses if the proper guidelines are followed. Attractions throughout Columbus remain closed and the Governor has continued the stay-at-home order with those business exceptions.

Honoring Our Hospitality Heroes 

Has someone in the hospitality industry made a big impact since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis? Perhaps a bus driver making sure you’re able to run essential errands; a delivery person keeping you well-fed on your favorite takeout; a bookseller who kept you well-stocked or a zookeeper who kept you entertained. 


While many of us stayed home, these heroes did their best to keep our local restaurants, retail establishments, hotels, attractions, and other business going, and greeted us from afar with a not-so-distant smile. Now, as recovery begins, with restaurants and shops reopening – they’ll continue working with optimism and the same reliable hospitality as ever. 


So join Experience Columbus and BrewDog to honor these essential workers and nominate someone on the frontlines of the hospitality industry who deserves a toast, three cheers and his/her favorite BrewDog beer.
