WARREN — There are now 1,368 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Trumbull County and 96 deaths, according to a release today from the Trumbull County Combined Health District.
Of the 26 total new cases, three cases were reported in a group setting such as a long-term care or correctional facility. One previously reported case was transferred to another state.
Of the county's total cases to date, 600 are male and 768 are female — ranging in age from infancy to 102 years old — and 247 people have been hospitalized.
The county reported no new deaths today.
The county continues to monitor another 138 people in quarantine for symptoms of the virus, as well as another five "suspect cases" through the state's disease reporting system.
There are 49 people being quarantined for monitoring in the city of Warren.
Another 869 people, including 354 from Warren, have completed quarantine periods.
According to the Ohio Department of Health COVID-19 dashboard, 1,003 people in Trumbull County are presumed to have recovered from the disease. That metric is based on the number of patients who presented symptoms more than 21 days ago but who have not died.
The county remains in the state's level 2 "orange" alert rating. It has the 15th-highest number of total cases in the state.
Under the statewide mask mandate issued July 23, county residents at least 10 years of age must wear masks in indoor areas other than residences, or in outdoor areas where a 6-foot distance from others can't be maintained.
Complaints for violations of pandemic orders or guidelines, including the statewide mask order instituted July 23, can be made by calling 330-675-7841. The district urges residents not to call 911 for complaints.
