The advisory is tied to a rise in COVID-19 cases

Health officials are advising people in Columbus and Franklin County to stay at home for 28 days starting Friday, Nov. 20 at 6 p.m.

Columbus Public Health (CPH) Commissioner Dr. Mysheika Roberts issued the advisory along with Franklin County Public Health (FCPH) "due to the rapid rise of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in the city and county."

People are asked to only leave home if they have to go to work, school or for essential needs such as going to the pharmacy, receiving medical care, picking up food or getting groceries. The advisory will remain in place for two consecutive incubation periods of the coronavirus, or 28 days, or until CPH and FCPH determine a chance in the advisory is needed.
