Ohio Public Health Advisory Alert System

October 29, 2020

  • During the Governor’s press conference today, Trumbull County was placed in the Red-Level 3-Very High Exposure category under the state’s Public Health Advisory Alert System.
  • Over the past 30 days, data that we have collected indicates that our transition from “orange” to “red” is a result of a significant increased community transmission.
  • Over the period of 10/19/20 – 10/25/20, Trumbull County experienced a new case increase of 199 cases compared to 89 cases the previous week. In addition, our case rate has increased from 25.76 per 100,000 through the end of September to 125.27 per 100,000 as of 10/28/2020, thus triggering that indicator in the altering system. Equally important, is the 7- day increase that we also experienced during that timeframe. At the end of September our 7-day case rate went from 2.71 to 13 by the end of October. 95.5% of Trumbull County’s cases are directly attributed to community spread, and not long term care facilities.
  • We have investigated outbreaks at various mass gathering settings, which included weddings, religious activities and school settings, but the bulk of the viral transmission is occurring from family member to family member through private family gatherings.
  • Given this sizable increase we are experiencing, it is more important now than ever that we follow the state orders of masking, social distancing, hand hygiene and environmental cleanliness. Moreover, we need to seriously think about curtailing our attendance at mass gatherings, or the need to hold them, where the risk of transmission is elevated and where others may be put at risk.
  • Trumbull County andWarren City Health Officials have been meeting and working in conjunction with our long term care facilities, hospital systems, incident command team, as well as our school systems, developing strategies to reduce the county’s risk of spread of COVID-19.
  • Health department staff continue to monitor COVID-19 on a daily basis, and will update strategies in conjunction with our EOC as the need arises and the data indicates. Therefore,our residents should remain vigilant and continue to limit their activities as much as possible, avoiding large gatherings, continue to practice social distancing, stay home when ill, keep their hands clean and sanitized, avoid touching their face, keep high touch areas clean ansanitized and wear facial covering when out in public.
