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. indefinitely to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The Franklin County stay-at-home advisory, also in effect indefinitely, asks citizens not to leave their residences or travel outside of Ohio unless it is absolutely necessary.

Columbus' Commitment to Safety

Many Columbus businesses have signed the Live Forward Pledge, signaling an agreement to follow federal, state and local health and safety guidelines for operating during the COVID-19 pandemic, including a citywide mask mandate. A number of the city’s highest visitor touchpoints are also leveling up their commitment by pursuing the GBAC STAR™ Accreditation, the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation for facilities.

The current Franklin County stay-at-home advisory asks citizens not to leave their residences or travel outside of Ohio unless it is absolutely necessary and a statewide curfew is in effect from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Saturday, Jan. 2 to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Those entering Ohio from states reporting positive testing rates of 15% or higher for COVID-19 are advised to self-quarantine for 14 days.
