Statement from Mayor Ginther Regarding "Stay at Home" Order

Mayor Ginther issued the following statement regarding the Stay At Home order from Governor DeWine:

“Today, Governor DeWine issued a ‘Stay at Home’ order which requires all Ohioans to stay at home, and limit trips to essential errands only. The order will go into effect 11:59 p.m. Monday.

It is important that we take this order seriously to stop community spread of COVID-19. We are at a critical point in our fight to stop the spread of this virus, and we must follow the governor’s order.

But this order should not cause panic, and I urge the residents of Columbus to act responsibly. You will still have access to necessities and health care including grocery stores, pharmacies and other essential services needed to keep our community healthy and safe.

While these are challenging times, it is not a time for fear. Instead, we must rely on facts. Our decisions should put the common health and well-being of our community and our families first.”
