Shelby County reports 12 new cases of COVID-19

Douglas County reported 2,681 cases of COVID-19 as of Thursday, an increase of 21 cases since Wednesday.

The increasing volume of new cases is contributing to difficulties providing timely information regarding age groups and source of transmission, according to a news release.

Women account for 52% of county COVID-19 cases, while men account for 48%, according to Monday's county health data.

The Karns City Area School District reported that a high school employee tested positive and the South Butler County School District reported that a teacher who works in the primary and intermediate elementary schools tested positive Thursday.

Breakdown of cases by zip codes includes: 465 cases for Sidney (45365), Anna (45302) 80 cases, Botkins (45306) 27 cases, Conover (45317) three cases, Fort Loramie/Newport (45845) 63 cases, Houston (45333) 22 cases, Jackson Center (45334) 28 cases, New Bremen (45869) two cases, New Knoxville (45871) three cases, Maplewood (45340) 13 cases, Minster (45865) 24 cases, Pemberton (45353) one case, Piqua (45356) 13 cases, Port Jefferson (45360) five cases and Russian Federation (45363) 59 cases.

"On behalf of the entire staff at the Bureau, Putnam and Marshall County Health Departments, I extend our deepest sympathy to the family of this victim of COVID-19", said Hector Gomez, administrator of the BPMCHD. Miami County has had 169 total hospitalizations and 56 deaths.

Officials said no one had died from the disease since their last update on Wednesday, leaving the provincial death toll at 250, and another 145 people had recovered.

"We're doing the best we can to report on new, active and recovered cases as well as deaths".

Henry said there were 3,608 people under active public health monitoring who had potentially been exposed to a person with COVID-19.

"The incidence of COVID-19 has been relatively low the past three weeks in Jackson County". Across IHA, there are now 29 active cases, while two people are in hospital and one person is in intensive care. "Students who are now engaged in hybrid in-person learning can continue, but I am recommending no increase in students or days of hybrid in-person instruction while I monitor transmission rates in our community".

Whitley County's COVID-19 current case incidence rate is 36.6, which places it in the red category.
