The county did not report any additional deaths due to COVID-19; 395 people have died from the virus in the county, according to the health department. The county had only six positive results before July 1 with the last reported in early June.

Sunday was the third day in a row the county reported more than 1,000 new cases of the virus, and County Judge Clay Jenkins warned on Twitter that the county is "experiencing rampant community spread". The unit has seen an increase of eight cases since then.

Cuyahoga, Franklin, Huron, Trumbull, Montgomery, Butler and Hamilton counties all remain under a Level 3 advisory.

As of Sunday, the DHHS reported 760 people have been hospitalized with COVID-19 or coronavirus related symptoms - and that's an increase of nearly 250 patients from the previous week.

That number remains at 796, 2.5% of the state's cases. These deaths account for 68% of the state's deaths. No counties have been deemed Level 4 at this time.

The Ohio Department of Health estimates that a total of 40,460 of the 57,151 total COVID-19 cases are now recovered.
