28-Day Stay-At-Home Advisory Has Been Issued For Franklin County

Starting Friday, Columbus and Franklin County residents are being advised to stay at home for the next four weeks.

Columbus Public Health Commissioner Dr. Mysheika Roberts issued the advisory with Franklin County Public Health “due to the rapid rise of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in the city and county.”

Residents are being advised to stay at home for 28 days starting on November 20 at 6 p.m. People are asked to only leave home if they have to go to work, school, or for essential needs. Those essentials include going to the pharmacy, picking up food, getting groceries, or getting medical care.

Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther fully supports the advisory, saying “We are committed to giving our communities the opportunity to change the trajectory we are on.”

This advisory comes just days after Governor DeWine issued a statewide, 21-day curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. beginning on November 19.
