On Monday Gov. Mike DeWine said that last week the first week the state has seen an increase in hospitalizations in two months.
Dayton, Cincinnati and Cleveland were among the regions that saw more hospitalizations for coronavirus.
He noted that none of the regions were near the “worrisome” threshold of 80% capacity though.

DeWine also announced that visitation can resume at nursing homes starting July 20. Facilities should consider how many cases have been reported in the community, access to testing and personal protective equipment supplies among other factors when considering to allow visitors.
On Thursday the governor said he’ll discuss plans as Ohio enters a new phase of the pandemic. Among the plans, guidelines about K-12 schools are expected to be released.
