Butler, Warren Counties Now at ‘High’ Community COVID-19 Level

Hamilton's numbers have also increased

As cases increase throughout the state, the CDC is classifying more southwest Ohio counties as having “high” COVID Community Levels — including Butler, Hamilton and Warren counties.

When determining community levels, the CDC looks at the number of new coronavirus cases per 100,000 people in the past week as well as new COVID hospital admissions and the percent of staffed inpatient hospital beds occupied by coronavirus patients.

“High” means that a county has more than 200 cases per 100,000 people, more than 10 hospital admissions per 100,000 people, and over 10 percent of the county’s staffed inpatient beds filled with COVID patients.
