City of Reynoldsburg COVID-19 Update
The community’s safety is the top priority for the City. Staff is monitoring the situation with the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) and following guidance from the State of Ohio, Franklin County Public Health, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
On March 12, the Ohio Governor’s Office announced that five cases of COVID-19 had been confirmed in Ohio. As a result, the Governor has announced a ban on mass gatherings of groups of more than 100 people and ordered that schools extend Spring Break to three weeks beginning Tuesday, March 17, for Reynoldsburg City Schools.
The City of Reynoldsburg is making significant changes to its operations in response to the Coronavirus situation.
- City Hall will remain open but will encourage visitors to request an appointment with specific departments prior to arriving.
- Mayor’s Court will be suspended and all pending cases continued until April 9, 2020 or a later date staggered to avoid overcrowding in City Hall. Those individuals scheduled to attend Mayor’s Court during this suspension period will receive a notice from the Clerk of Court of their new court date.
- The City of Reynoldsburg will be suspending city water shut offs during the public health emergency. The thirty (30) day reprieve regarding domestic water shut offs will
begin on March 13th, 2020, and will end on April 13, 2020. Any
turnoffs scheduled for March 17, will be differed until April 14, any outstanding
balances must be paid prior to, or at that time, to avoid shut off.
- The Regional Income Tax Agency will be suspending all in-person taxpayer assistance effective Saturday, March 14, 2020, until further notice. This includes all Taxpayer Assistance Events hosted by member municipalities as well as in-person service provided in all of the RITA offices. We believe it is in the best interest of public and employee health and safety to temporarily suspend these services.

This also includes a detailed review of our Parks & Recreation programs and facilities, upcoming meetings and events.
- Effective at the end of the day, Friday, March 13, all Reynoldsburg Senior Center programs, trips, and lunches will be canceled until further notice. The only exception will be for those members who have previously scheduled tax appointments with AARP. This action is being taken to promote the safety of our seniors, who are an at-risk group for COVID-19 (Coronavirus.)
- The Senior Center will be open for voting on March 17, 2020.
