The state’s seven-day positivity rate is 14.7%, just below the 15% threshold Ohio uses when compiling the travel advisory. ODH recommends that anyone traveling to Ohio from a state with a positivity rate of 15% or mores self-quarantine for 14 days.

Following the Thanksgiving holiday, Gov. Mike DeWine asked Ohioans to continue to limit physical contact with people outside their household.
“I’m asking every Ohioan to continue to pull back and limit your activities. There is a cause and effect to what we do — we can slow this down,” he said. The scariest thing is that there is no indication that we have plateaued. We haven’t seen anything like this for 100 years.”
