COVID-19

Low community level graphic

Ross County is in a low community level.

This is based on a combination of three metrics — new COVID-19 admissions per 100,000 population in the past 7 days, the percent of staffed inpatient beds occupied by COVID-19 patients, and total new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population in the past 7 days — to determine the COVID-19 community level. Read what each level means.


The CDC and the Ohio Department of health have updated COVID-19 quarantine and isolation guidelines. The flow chart is for what to do for an exposure to someone with COVID-19. Regardless of vaccination status or symptoms, anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 must isolate for at least 5 days. If symptoms are improving, isolation may end on the sixth day following either symptom onset or a positive COVID-19 test if the person consistently wears a mask for the next five days. The Ohio Department of Health has also updated K-12 school quarantine guidance including “mask to stay” and “test to play” timelines accordingly.

Vaccine Information

The Ross County Health District offers the Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J primary series and booster vaccines. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is our best defense against serious illness and death. The CDC recommends that everyone ages 5 years and older get vaccinated. RCHD encourages a vaccine booster dose for those who are eligible. Our clinic is walk-in only, open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. All late clinics will be posted here and on our social media as they are scheduled.
