Several outbreaks of COVID-19 reported in Lawrence County, Ohio
COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSAZ) - Though Scioto County has been downgraded to a Level 2 Public Health Advisory, Lawrence County remains at a Level 3 after several outbreaks have been reported.
According to the Ohio Department of Health, Level 3 indicates a very high exposure and spread of the virus.
Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine says outbreaks of the virus have been reported at a church camp, funeral, restaurant, and long-term care in the county. He did not specify exact locations or facilities.
During a briefing Thursday, DeWine said the county is seeing a sustained increase in new cases which is “moving in the wrong direction.”
