Greene County Drops to Low Level in the CDC Community COVID-19 Levels Framework

XENIA, OH -- Greene County has been experiencing a downward trend of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations for the past week, and due to this decrease, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has designated Greene County as a Low Level in its COVID-19 Community Level Framework.

Per the CDC, the weekly metrics used to determine the community level were listed as follows:

  • Case Rate per 100,000 population: 91.75
  • New COVID-19 admissions per 100,000 population: 9.5%
  • Staffed inpatient beds in use by patients with confirmed COVID-19: 2.9%

The COVID-19 Community Levels framework is a tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in your area. 

 When a county is designated at a low level in the CDC’s framework, the following actions are recommended:

Greene County Public Health, along with our State and Federal partners, will continue to monitor the status of the COVID-19 pandemic and make revised recommendations should conditions warrant.
