Warren County Moved To Level 3 Public Emergency For COVID-19
COVID-19 cases are going up in Ohio, particularly in the western part of the state. Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine revealed the new Ohio Public Health Advisory map today and Warren County is at Level 3, or a red county, for the first time.
Warren County is one of 29 red counties this week. DeWine said 65 percent of Ohioans are currently living in a red county. There are 52 counties that are considered high incidence counties, which means they have had more than 100 cases per 100,000 people over the past two weeks. With 167.9 cases per 100,000 people, Warren County ranks 25th of Ohio's 88 counties in terms of highest occurrence of COVID-19 this week.
According to DeWine, health departments have said that the schools are doing a good job, but the spread is coming from social gatherings.
