Columbus Public Health Recommends Lifting Mask Requirement on March 7

The update aligns with recent CDC guidance

Columbus Public Health is recommending city leaders in Columbus and Worthington wait until March 7 to end mask mandates.

The recommendation was made to align with recently updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which states most healthy Americans no longer need to wear masks.

According to a release from the health department, the week-out date was chosen to give public and private entities time to adjust their mask policies as well as to ensure the current case and hospitalization trends continue.
