    The downward trend in COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations continues this week. All of northern Kentucky and greater Cincinnati have low or medium COVID-19 levels according to the CDC.

    03/17/22 - COVID-19 Update

    We continue to see dramatic declines in COVID-19 infections in the region. Case rates in the northern counties, which topped out at more than 300 per 100,000 population per day during the Omicron surge, are steadily in the two-to-six range. The statewide transmission factor is 0.44—the lowest we have seen since that data point has been tracked—and indicates an exponential decline in cases. The CDC now classifies transmission levels in Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties as “green” with guidance that masking be optional.

Current cases per 100,000 per day in the three northernmost Kentucky counties average less than 20—the lowest we have seen since last summer. The transmission factor, an indicator of the trajectory of infections, is well below 1.0, which indicates a continued exponential decline in cases moving forward [...]
