Although Ohio does not have statewide curfew laws, different jurisdictions, such as the city of Columbus, enforce citywide curfew laws for minors, according to a report by NBC4I. Curfew laws may vary by city.

In the city of Reynoldsburg, Ohio, the law prohibits minors under 14 from being outside between 10 p.m. and 4:30 a.m. on school nights, with the curfew beginning at 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. According to the City of Hilliard, children under 12 years of age should not be outdoors unsupervised after dark, while the movements of all people under 18 years old are restricted between 12 a.m. and 6 a.m. Similar curfew laws are found in Wadsworth, Ohio.
