The COVID-19 pandemic is unsettling, and our thoughts and prayers are with those who are impacted by the virus.
The safety of our visitors, community, and volunteers is our highest priority, and we are confident that the area businesses that remain open are deploying the appropriate sanitation protocols. We encourage everyone to follow the precautions issued by the CDC and other authorities to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Due to orders issued by Governor Mike DeWine, as of 9:00 PM on March 15, dine-in options at all restaurants and bars are suspended. Carry-out and delivery is available from the restaurants that remain open.
Cases of COVID-19 continue to be confirmed in the Columbus area – although no cases have been confirmed in Marysville or Union County. Travelers are welcome should they decide that a visit is desired and in their best interest. Visitors will likely experience disruption to their plans due to closures and event cancellations.
With the situation evolving rapidly, we encourage visitors to consult national and local health authorities before traveling. We also advise visitors and patrons to contact restaurants and other businesses to determine if they are open during this public health emergency.
