COLUMBUS — Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther said he plans to issue an executive order for everyone, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask in public indoor places, according to a report from our affiliate 10TV.
The announcement came during a Wednesday news conference held in collaboration with Columbus health leaders.
“This is about keeping Columbus safe and open for business by employing a strategy that we know can slow the spread of COVID-19,” Ginther said.
Ginther told 10TV he will release additional information about the executive order in the next few days.
News Center 7 has reached out to the City of Dayton to see if Mayor Nan Whaley is considering a similar measure.
