WARREN — Trumbull County has reported a total of 2,238 cases of COVID-19 to date, which includes 30 new cases reported today, according to Trumbull County Combined Health District.

Of those total reported cases, about 228 are presumed to be active infections.

The county reported no new deaths today. A total of 132 people have died in the county to date, according to the district.

None of the 30 new cases since Sunday were reported in a group setting such as a long-term care or correctional facility. One case was removed since they did not live in the county, and another case was removed since it was a duplicate.

The county is monitoring another 156 people in quarantine for symptoms of the virus. There are 30 people being quarantined for monitoring in the city of Warren. The county is not currently monitoring any additional “suspect cases” through the Ohio Disease Reporting System.

A total of 1,750 people in the county, including 592 from Warren, have completed quarantine periods and been released.

A total of 1,868 people in the county are presumed to have recovered from the virus as of Saturday, according to the Ohio Department of Health COVID-19 dashboard. That metric is measured as the number of COVID-19 patients whose symptoms reportedly began more than 21 days ago but who have not died.

The county reported three new hospitalizations today. A total of 314 people have been hospitalized for COVID-19 in the county to date.

Of the county's total cases to date, 1,021 are male and 1,217 are female. Their ages range from infancy to 102 years old.

Trumbull County returned to the state’s level 2 “orange” alert status under the Ohio Public Health Advisory System map, as the county now meets three of the system's seven risk indicators:

  • The county has reported 57.58 new cases per 100,000 people over the past two weeks. Counties meet this indicator if reporting more than 50 cases per 100,000 people over the past two weeks.

  • More than 95 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 non-congregate cases from at least one of the last three weeks was over 50 percent.

  • The county reported a consecutive, five-day increase in its seven-day average of outpatient visits to health care providers for COVID-19 over the past three weeks. The increase was reported between Oct. 4, when the average was 24 visits per day, and Oct. 10, when the average had risen to 36 visits per day.

Trumbull County on Tuesday had the 21st-highest number of total cases in the state, as well as the ninth-highest total deaths, according to ODH.

Trumbull County Combined Health District maintains a dedicated hotline to report complaints for violations of pandemic orders or guidelines, including the statewide mask order that took effect July 23. That number is 330-675-7841. The district urges residents not to call 911 for complaints.
