Tuesday, the Ohio Department of Health reported 430,093 confirmed and probable cases, 27,449 hospitalizations with 4,729 ICU admissions, and 6,548 deaths in Ohio. The data is incomplete due to unprecedented volume with thousands of reports pending review.

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.
