Ohio Department of Health Shifts to Weekly COVID-19 Data Reporting


Ohio Department of Health (ODH) Director Bruce Vanderhoff, MD, MBA, announced today that the state of Ohio will transition from daily to weekly COVID-19 data reporting at beginning next week. 

Daily reporting of key indicators including case counts, hospitalizations, and vaccinations will continue through Sunday, March 13. Then, the reporting cadence will change to weekly beginning Thursday, March 17. 

“As cases and hospitalizations dramatically decline, we are refining our public reporting processes to be more relevant for this new phase of the pandemic,” Dr. Vanderhoff said. “Ohio is one of only a handful of states that is still reporting COVID-19 data daily. Even with this change, the state team will continue to monitor the trajectory of COVID-19 closely. The ODH team has many systems including data analysis and surveillance that will help us monitor COVID-19 activity and identify pockets of higher spread so we can work with local communities to slow the spread of the virus.”
