Confirmed vs Probable Cases
Confirmed cases are defined as those cases who have been laboratory tested.
Under the expanded definition on the counting of COVID-19 cases, we have begun reporting those cases that are considered presumed/probable. These cases include those who have tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 without a lab test confirmation.
Questions about COVID-19
The Ohio Department of Health has established a call center to answer your questions about this virus. Call center staff includes licensed nurses and infectious disease experts. They will be available to answer questions and provide accurate information about COVID-19, the risk to the public, and the state’s response.
