The Mason area has the most coronavirus cases in Warren County, according to an interactive map of COVID-19 data by ZIP code and reported by the Journal-News.
Warren County, which has reported 8,415 cases since the pandemic began, on Wednesday was among 11 counties placed on the watch list for the highest alert level, or purple, on the color-coded Ohio Public Health Advisory System. It will be elevated next week to purple — which means “severe exposure and spread” of the virus — if conditions don’t improve.
The county also has reported a cumulative 76 deaths and 378 hospitalizations related to the coronavirus, the Ohio Department of Health reported Wednesday. Thursday’s daily numbers will be reported Friday due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
Although the county as a whole is experiencing a surge in cases, some areas have been hit harder than others since the pandemic began.
