Columbus Live Forward Pledge

columbus live forward badge


Having ensured proper health and safety protocols are in place, including a citywide mask requirement, many of Columbus’ vibrant businesses, including restaurants, attractions, shops and more, have safely reopened and are ready to welcome residents and visitors alike.We're excited to offer the "Live Forward" Pledge to assure customers and guests that each of our businesses, who are reopening, are putting health and safety at the forefront now more than ever.


Signing the pledge signals an agreement made by businesses to follow federal, state, and local health and safety guidelines for proper reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic. Once signed, businesses will receive a window decal as well as a customizable signage toolkit to alert patrons of their commitment to the Live Forward pledge. As more pledge partners sign up, the window decal and website badge will become a visual symbol of what businesses have made the health and safety of their patrons a priority. View the current businesses that have signed the Live Forward Pledge.


As more resources become available the resources below will be continually updated with the latest information based on new phases of reopening.

Mask Up Columbus

Wearing a mask is a sign of kindness, of compassion for your community. In Columbus, it's also mandatory for anyone over the age of six in all public spaces where six-feet of social distancing cannot be maintained. Exemptions include people with medical or behavioral conditions, people exercising, people actively eating or drinking and those communicating with someone hearing impaired. Read the full ordinance here. Similar mandates exist across the entirety of Franklin County.
