Columbus city buildings relaxing mask rules Friday

The city of Columbus will be relaxing its mask mandates in city buildings, starting on Friday.

The city will no longer require that masks be worn by visitors and city employees in city buildings unless a person is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or has tested positive for the disease.

Masks will continue to be available for visitors if they want one. If a visitor would feel more comfortable interacting with an employee who is wearing a mask, city employees will wear one.
