Stay at Home Advisory
UPDATE: Columbus Public Health and Franklin County Public Health have extended the Stay at Home Advisory until January 2, 2021. The Stay at Home Advisory, which began on November 20, was extended due to high case numbers and community spread and coincides with the Governor’s 10 p.m. curfew.
Franklin County is at a critical point in the fight against COVID-19. Columbus Public Health and Franklin County Public Health have issued a stay at home advisory, as of Nov. 20, requesting all residents of Columbus and Franklin County to stay at home to protect family, friends and others and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Additionally, Franklin County is now the first county in Ohio at the Purple Level on the COVID-19 Ohio Public Health Advisory System.
Please note that an exception to these advisories is leaving home to seek medical care, including behavioral health care. Providers in the ADAMH System of Care will remain open and serving the public. Please do not skip your appointments. Check on your loved ones – especially those in recovery.
