Ohio\s COVID 19 Case Rate Rises To 200 Per 100K People, Further From Health Order Goal


Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced Thursday that Ohio's COVID-19 case rate is moving further from the benchmark set to lift all health orders. 

As of Thursday, Ohio's case rate is 200 per 100,000 people. 

DeWine said at one point, the state's case rate was above 700 per 100,000 people. At its lowest, the state's rate was around 135.

Two weeks ago, the state's case rate was 167.1 cases per 100,000. 

Lucas County has the highest case rate at 341.1 cases per 100,000, which is about three times what the CDC considers high incidence. Franklin County has the 16th-highest rate with 230.8 cases per 100,000 people.

DeWine said while the state is continuing to vaccinate residents, COVID-19 variants are rising. 

During a statewide address on March 4, DeWine said all of the state's health orders would be lifted when the state has 50 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people for two weeks.
