This is the third week that ODH has released these numbers. 535 cases (340 students and 195 staff) are new this week.

295 (47%) of the state’s 626 public school districts and academies have reported at least one case of COVID-19 to the Department of Health.

Two Central Ohio schools lead the state in cumulative cases the second week in a row: Olentangy Local Schools (38) and Delaware Christian School (29). South-Western City Schools (26) ranks third, and Marysville and Dublin also rank in the top 10.
