COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine says the Ohio Department of Health reports the two-week statewide average of cases per 100,000 residents is at 49.5.
These cases occurred from May 22 to June 4, according to a news release from DeWine’s office.
“Ohioans have shown our resilience and grit, and by continuing to get vaccinated we are coming through this pandemic stronger than ever,” DeWine said in the release. “When I announced this goal on March 4th, I said that reaching 50 cases per 100,000 would mean we were entering a new phase of this pandemic. Vaccinations are working. That’s why cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are down. But that doesn’t mean we can let our foot off the gas. If you’re not vaccinated against COVID-19, continue to wear a mask in public and Ohioans that are able to get vaccinated should.”
More than 5.3 million Ohioans have started their vaccine process, the release says. There are more than 4.7 million people who are fully vaccinated.
