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.”
