Dublin Travel Updates

COVID-19/Coronavirus

The global COVID-19 pandemic is unsettling, and our thoughts are with those who are affected by the virus and the uncertainty surrounding it.

The safety of our visitors, community, and staff is Visit Dublin's highest priority, and we are confident that area businesses and attractions are deploying the appropriate sanitation protocols. We encourage everyone to follow the health and safety precautions issued by the CDC to make informed decisions as they go about their daily routine.

The City of Dublin will continue to follow the guidance of the State of Ohio and Franklin County Public Health. Per the latest state order, fully vaccinated persons can resume activities without wearing a mask. Persons who are not fully vaccinated should continue to wear a mask, socially distance, avoid large gatherings, and whenever possible, be outside for activities and gatherings. Businesses may continue to require mitigation measures (e.g., masking and social distancing) among those vaccinated and unvaccinated.

While you may see signs promoting health and safety around Dublin, there are no mandates or enforcement measures in place regarding face coverings, vaccination or physical distancing.
