Loveland, Ohio – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has classified Hamilton, Clermont, and Warren Counties as having “High” COVID-19 community spread. The 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 from Hamilton County Public Health:

• Wear a well-fitting mask indoors in public, on public transportation, and in crowded outdoor areas regardless of your 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.
