The number of positive COVID-19 cases continues to climb in Hamilton County, and the number of people hospitalized because of the virus in the region is also increasing. It comes as the county could move to "purple" on the state's coronavirus advisory map when it's released Thursday. That's the highest level.
Hamilton County faces the threat of being reclassified as "purple," the highest level of COVID-19 spread on Ohio's color-coded alert system. Ohio has topped 200,000 cases of the virus since the pandemic began and as of Tuesday, there are 18,433 hospitalizations. What does our region need to do right now to reverse this trend?
