OHIO, USA — All 88 counties in Ohio are now listed as having a high level of community transmission of COVID-19 according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In an updated map that shows the time period of Aug. 27 - Sept. 2, all counties are in the 'red.' Ashtabula County was the last one to turn red on Thursday.
According to the CDC’s guidance, vaccinated people should return to wearing masks if they live in a county with a substantial or high spread.
In the color-coded map, orange reflects substantial community transmission and red indicates high transmission.
