Ohio Public Advisory System:Dashboard Public Advisory 01_14
Preliminary Ohio Department of Health Data:Dashboard Public Overview 01_15
* Updated 01/15/21
Those entering Ohio after travel to states reporting positive testing rates of 15% or higher for COVID-19 are advised to self-quarantine for 14 days.
Positivity rate is an indicator of how much COVID-19 there is in a community, and ODH is recommending against travel to those states with high positivity. If someone must travel, ODH is recommending 14 days of self-quarantine after leaving those locations. This advisory is intended for both leisure and business travel, and should be heeded by both Ohioans and out-of-state travelers. It is intended as guidance and is not a mandate—please consider the information here along with other factors (mode of transportation, lodging, activities, ability to social distance when traveling, personal health factors, etc.) when making travel decisions for yourself and your family.
The positivity rates come from state-level aggregate data from The COVID Tracking Project (https://covidtracking.com/data), which is also the source that Johns Hopkins University uses for testing data on their dashboard at https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/testing/individual-states. Positivity information for Ohio’s travel advisory is updated once a week on Wednesdays, using data from that Tuesday. Positivity rates may have changed since our most recent update.
Based on a 7-day rolling average of positivity rates of January 13, the affected states are:
*Mississippi and Wyoming have experienced reporting irregularities with the total number of tests performed this past week, which means we are not able to calculate an accurate positivity rate.
