COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – For the second time in four weeks, the weekly increase of COVID-19 cases reported by Ohio’s K-12 schools was below 1,000.

This week’s increase of 845 ekes out February 25’s 847 as the state’s record low. The total cumulative cases reported by the Ohio Department of Health among students and staff members this academic year now stands at 66,630.

Cases had been ticking up the past couple of weeks after reaching the then-record low of 847 in late February. They increased by more than 3,000 last week, but this week’s small increase brings that trend down.
