Based upon data from the Ohio Department of Health available at https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/covid-19/dashboards cross-referenced with the the visualization by Johns Hopkins University at https://bao.arcgis.com/covid-19/jhu/county/39007.html the following can be noted:

  • Ashtabula County had on 2020-11-12 1,344 cumulative coronavirus cases reported. As of the reporting cutoff of 1900 UTC on 2020-11-13 the county sat at 1,446 which is a change of +102.
  • Ohio had on 2020-11-12 274,457 cumulative coronavirus cases reported. As of the reporting cutoff of 1900 UTC on 2020-11-13 the state sat at 282,528 which is a change of +8,071.
  • Ashtabula County is now 30th out of 88 on the high incidence ranking chart of counties.
  • Ohio had more than Switzerland’s 6,739 but less than Romania’s 9,489 new case reports today.

The county continues at the third level of alert on the Ohio Public Health Advisory System which is otherwise referred to as “Red Alert” with the added “high incidence” designation. The soonest that that can change per normal data release schedules is Thursday, November 19, 2020. The map is becoming increasingly useless as most counties are now red on it. What will become more usable will be the ranking chart showing case incidence per one hundred thousand.

A decision will likely be made by the governor next week on the 19th as to whether or not bars, restaurants, and other venues will be shuttered. If this trajectory continues it seems highly likely he will do so. Nothing is certain, though.

A new dashboard to view cases by postal code can be found at the state coronavirus website.

Work accelerates in terms of response measures at Erie Looking Productions. Implementation will soon be required.
