“We’re replacing her, and the state came out with a workforce development grant. They provided funding for us to expand, so that’s how we’re hiring another nurse. We’re looking at at least one more nurse,” he said. “Just trying to help us through this.” In other matters, during the Monday meeting of the health board members approved hiring an additional outbreak investigator. Sproul also said one nurse practitioner left the health department for another job. Sproul added the state’s health commissioners also expect to participate in a weekly call with Gov. Mike DeWine’s office today.

He said there have been a total of 7,969 cases in the county since the outbreak began, with 6,835 recoveries. Sproul said 10 residents are hospitalized with the virus, and 124 people have died after being infected. “The majority of positives are under 55. A lot of families are in the positives,” Sproul said in a text message.

Numbers reported by the state differ, as they have since reporting began. According to coronavirus.ohio.gov, there have been 7,660 total cases in Belmont County, with 6,531 recoveries and 183 deaths. Belmont County Deputy Health Commissioner Robert Sproul said there are 1,000 active cases in the county with about half — or 500 — of them being juveniles.

“Our queue of new cases is very, very full,” Rhome said, adding almost half of the new cases that morning, about a dozen, were found in minors. “No child is going to not have the potential of either getting sick because of a close contact from an adult, or contributing to the infection of a close contact with an adult, so it’s reasonable that many of the active cases are close contacts with the minors. It’s all interrelated. … That population is mostly not eligible for a vaccine yet, unfortunately, so we want to continue as a community to protect those. There is a large segment of the community, they have not said they don’t want the vaccine, they are simply not eligible, so we need to continue to do everything we can. Vaccinate yourself if eligible and continue those mitigation efforts to protect those … young folks from getting sick. That’s just a community effort. Early Monday, Harrison County Health Department Administrator Garen Rhome said case numbers had surged throughout the weekend.

According to coronavirus.ohio.gov, there have been 1,419 total cases, with 1,197 recoveries and 40 deaths associated with the virus in Harrison County. The Harrison County Health Department’s Facebook page lists 1,421 total cases since the pandemic’s onset, with 1,259 recoveries. There are 136 active cases and 26 deaths associated with the virus in the county.
