As of noon Friday, Wyandot County Public Health reported a total of 64 coronavirus cases in the county, including 51 lab confirmed cases, six probable cases and seven additional probable cases based on positive antibody tests for Wyandot County.

No patients currently are hospitalized. Of the reported individuals, there have been five deaths and 54 recoveries.

The Wyandot County COVID-19 death number has been reduced by one. After further review it was determined COVID-19 was not a contributing factor to a previously reported death.

Do not rely on the number of positive tests to determine when to take protection seriously. Practice social distancing, wear face coverings in public and self-quarantine when possible.

As of 10 a.m. Friday, the Ohio Department of Health reported 61,331 confirmed and probable cases, 8,570 hospitalizations, and 3,006 deaths in Ohio.

The Ohio Department of Health has created a dashboard which provides both local and regional data at coronavirus.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/covid-19/home/dashboard.

Antibody testing currently is available to the public. As Wyandot County Public Health receives the results of these tests, it will be reported using specific criteria. If the patient received a positive antibody test and had been in close contact with a lab-confirmed case, linked to a community outbreak or exhibited symptoms of COVID-19, the case will be labeled as probable. A positive antibody test result meeting none of these conditions will be considered a suspected case.
