COVID-19 cases increase by 944 in Ohio
The weekend saw an increase of 944 COVID-19 cases, bringing the statewide total to 93,031.
The Ohio Department of Health reported 3,529 deaths statewide Sunday, an increase of 14.
Wednesday to Friday set a new record high for a three-day span with 4,662 cases reported statewide.
To address this, the Ohio Liquor Control Commission voted 3-0 Friday to have bars stop serving alcohol at 10 p.m. and close at 11 p.m. after Gov. Mike DeWine recommended it Thursday, citing “grave concerns about the spread of coronavirus at establishments that serve alcohol for on-site consumption.”

Columbiana County reported just four new cases, bringing its total to 1,570, and no new deaths with that total staying at 60.
