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.

Attractions throughout Columbus remain closed and the Governor has continued the stay-at-home order with those business exceptions.
