Thus Far- 64% of Ross COVID Tests Have Been "Negative" For Virus


The Ross County Health District is reporting that there are now thirteen confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ross County residents. The reported cases are for Ross County residents only.

Not all confirmed cases were tested at Adena Health System and Adena may have additional confirmed cases that are not Ross County residents as they serve a multi-county region.

At the time of this release, there have been 162 Ross County residents tested, 13 confirmed positive, 103 negative, and 46 suspected (waiting on test results). Those confirmed with COVID-19 range in ages 23-75. There are ten males and three females.

The Health District’s infectious disease staff continue following established contact tracing guidelines and will contact anyone these individuals have been in close contact with.

The Health District reminds the public to do your part and stay home. If you need assistance during this stay at home order, residents can call 2-1-1 or visit www.211oh.org to find local resources and services in Ross County.
