Eight Ohio counties move to 'red' coronavirus alert status; Allen County approaching 'purple' status

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Eight Ohio counties moved to “red” status on the state’s color-coded coronavirus alert system, with Allen County marked as approaching Level 4, or “purple” status.

That makes 23 counties out of 88 that fall into level 3 status, the second-highest risk alert category.

Level 4 status is when there is severe exposure and spread in a community. Northwestern Allen County, which contains Lima, has reported 110 coronavirus in the past 14 days -- 23% of the total cases the county has experienced.

Allen County meets six indicators which calculate risk status. Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said in a briefing that family and friends taking group trips and having pool parties contributed to increase in cases. One trip led to 15 confirmed cases.
