If Trumbull County continues to meet six of the Ohio Public Health Advisory System's seven risk indicators next week, it will be elevated to Level 4 "purple" alert status.
Trumbull County, as of Friday, meets five of the system's seven risk indicators:
- The county has reported 1,626 new cases in the last two weeks, which is about 821 new cases per 100,000 people. Counties meet this indicator if reporting more than 50 cases per 100,000 people over the past two weeks.
- The county reported a consecutive, at least five-day increase in the seven-day average of new cases over the past three weeks. On Nov. 8, that average was 104 new cases. It rose to an average of about 152 new cases on Nov. 19.
- Between 82 percent and 97 percent of the county’s new cases in each of the last three weeks were reported outside of group settings such as long-term care or correctional facilities. Counties meet this indicator if weekly noncongregate cases from at least one of the last three weeks was more than 50 percent.
- The county reported a consecutive, at least five-day increase in its seven-day average of emergency department visits for COVID-like illness within the past three weeks. On Nov. 4, that average was six visits. It rose to an average 24 new visits on Nov. 16.
- The county reported a consecutive, at least five-day increase in its seven-day average of outpatient visits for COVID-like illness, which are then followed by a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 diagnosis, within the past three weeks. On Nov. 8, that average was 14 visits. It rose to an average 20 visits on Nov. 13.
- The county reported intensive care unit bed occupancy rates over 80 percent every day the week of Nov. 18. The county also reported more than 20 percent of ICU beds were occupied by COVID-19 patients every day last week. Counties meet that indicator if the percentage of occupied ICU beds rises above 80 percent for three days in the last week and if more than 20 percent of ICU beds are occupied by COVID-19 patients.
Trumbull County on Friday had the 16th-highest number of total cases in the state, as well as the 10th-highest total deaths, according to ODH.
