HAMILTON COUNTY CLASSIFIED “HIGH” COVID-19 COMMUNITY LEVEL

CINCINNATI  – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have classified Hamilton

County as having “High” COVID-19 community spread. CDC looks at the combination of three metrics

— new COVID-19 hospital admissions per 100,000 population in the past 7 days, the percent of

staffed inpatient beds occupied by COVID-19 patients, and total new COVID-19 cases per 100,000

population in the past 7 days — to determine the COVID-19 community level.

Immediate recommendations:

• Wear a well fitting mask indoors in public, on public transportation, and in crowded outdoor

areas regardless of vaccination status.

• Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines.

• Get tested if you have symptoms.

• If you are at high risk for severe illness, consider taking additional precautions. Talk to your

doctor to find what works best for you.

• Stay home if you are sick
