Is your city or state currently open for group business?
Yes
What restrictions or limitations are currently in effect in your state?
Columbus currently has a mandatory mask mandate for anyone over the age of six in all public spaces where 6 feet of social distancing cannot be maintained. Exemptions include people with medical or behavioral conditions, people exercising, people actively eating or drinking and those communicating with someone hearing impaired. Similar mandate exist throughout the state. The state of Ohio also advises visitors coming from states reporting 15% or higher positive testing rates for COVID-19 to self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival. The list of states is updated weekly, based on a 7-day rolling average of positivity rates, and can be found at https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/covid-19/families-and-individuals/COVID-19-Travel-Advisory/ As Ohio slowly begins the process of reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic, mass gatherings (currently groups over 10) are still prohibited where social distancing is not possible. However, as of June 1, hotels, catering and banquet centers are allowed to reopen under similar guidelines as restaurants, which includes six feet distancing between tables. Currently, crowd size is capped at 300 where distancing allows. This means a facility can host as many events as it can safely social distance, as long as total number of guests do not exceed 300. Currently, all events must have a food and beverage component.
