While there is a noticeable turnaround in the recent decline of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, that change has not been reflected in numbers reported by Richland County schools and long-term care facilities over the same period.

The number of new weekly infections has increased by 40% in the last two weeks, and two of the Ohio Public Health Advisory System indicators have been triggered again — the number of emergency room visits and outpatient visits. It has been several weeks since the last time these particular measures have been met.

That shared, cases reported in Richland County schools, as well as in nursing homes and assisted living centers, have not increased in a corresponding manner.

On Wednesday, the following numbers were reported by the Ohio Department of Health for the county’s long-term care facilities:

  • Crystal Care Center of Mansfield — 1 staff
  • Oak Grove Manor — 1 staff
  • Winchester Terrace — 1 staff

These three cases do represent an increase over recent weeks, but not a marked one.

Similarly, Richland County schools continue to report a very modest number of COVID-19 infections:

  • Clear Fork — 2 staff
  • Crestview — 1 student
  • Madison — 1 student
  • Mansfield — 3 staff

On Saturday, we will review the most recent COVID-19 vaccination numbers for Richland County.
