Franklin County remains at purple, or level 4, the highest level in the State's public health advisory system. Four Ohio counties are now designated as purple, which means that there is severe exposure and spread of COVID-19 occurring. People are advised to follow all current health orders, safety protocols, and only leave home for essential supplies and services.
As the Stay-at-Home advisory remains in effect in Franklin County, you are reminded to only leave home for essential needs and activities. If you must go out, always wear a mask, wash your hands thoroughly and often, and stay physically distant. Health experts urge you to use good judgment and not gather with friends and family who do not live in your immediate household over the holidays. Remember that a negative COVID-19 test is not a guarantee that you or your family members are COVID-19 free. Due to the incubation period, you could subsequently develop symptoms and be contagious to others around you. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is warning against any travel this holiday season.
