CEDARVILLE, Ohio — With coronavirus cases in Ohio continuing to hit record highs, the state of Ohio has come up with a new way to track the cases in your community.
During his COVID-19 briefing on Thursday, Governor Mike DeWine announced the creation of a new zip code dashboard. Ohioans can now view data from their local communities and filter data by probable or confirmed case status, county, a specific zip code, or a specific time period.
Case counts will also be available on a downloadable, filterable chart sorted from the most cases to the least. To protect confidentiality, case counts for zip codes with fewer than five cases or less than 100 total residents will not be displayed.

On Thursday, Ohio reported a new daily record high of 7,101 new coronavirus cases. Additionally, all 88 of the state's counties are now to be considered to be "high incidence" in regards to the coronavirus.
Among the measures taken by Gov. DeWine on Wednesday was the reissuing of the state's mask order, with potential punishments for businesses that fail to enforce it. Gov. DeWine also said he would soon be issuing new orders regarding gatherings and activities and would spend the coming weeks evaluating whether to close bars, restaurants, fitness centers and schools if the state's coronavirus numbers don't improve.
