Columbus' Commitment to Safety

The safety of visitors to Columbus is the city’s highest priority. The spread of the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus has increased significantly over the past few weeks, and Experience Columbus advises all visitors and residents to follow CDC and Columbus Public Health guidelines. Mayor Andrew J. Ginther signed an executive order on Friday, Sept. 10, declaring a State of Emergency in the City of Columbus and requiring that face masks be worn by individuals age 6 and older while in indoor spaces accessible to the public, regardless of vaccination status. The order will remain in place until the State of Emergency no longer exists and the Proclamation is lifted. For further details, view the official ordinance here and learn more here.

Experience Columbus and partner businesses continue to expand adoption of the Live Forward Pledge and GBAC STAR™ Accreditation to provide confidence and trust that safety guidelines are being followed.   

Updates on CDC and Columbus Public Health guidelines can be found at and, respectively.
