November 25 - Worthington COVID-19 Cases

As of November 25, 2020, the City of Worthington has 481 confirmed cases of COVID-19. We remain at 44 deaths of Worthington residents. We know this will be a difficult holiday season for those who have lost loved ones and our sincere sympathies are with the friends and families of those Worthington residents who have died as a result of COVID-19. 

As of November 25, 2020, there are 38,013 confirmed cases in the Columbus Public Health (CPH) jurisdiction, which includes Worthington. 511 people in the CPH jurisdiction have died.

Franklin County remains at purple, or level 4, the highest level in the State's public health advisory system. Four Ohio counties are now designated as purple, which means that there is severe exposure and spread of COVID-19 occurring. People are advised to follow all current health orders, safety protocols, and only leave home for essential supplies and services.

As the Stay-at-Home advisory remains in effect in Franklin County, you are reminded to only leave home for essential needs and activities. If you must go out, always wear a mask, wash your hands thoroughly and often, and stay physically distant. Health experts urge you to use good judgment and not gather with friends and family who do not live in your immediate household over the holidays. Remember that a negative COVID-19 test is not a guarantee that you or your family members are COVID-19 free. Due to the incubation period, you could subsequently develop symptoms and be contagious to others around you. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is warning against any travel this holiday season.
