Coronavirus Alert Levels: What do they mean? 

On Thursday, Gov. Mike DeWine introduced the Ohio Public Health Advisory Alert System to monitor varying risk levels in different Ohio counties. Montgomery and Butler Counties are two of seven counties to be considered on a “level three” alert.

In Level 3, or red, counties meet four or five indicators dictated by the alert system. The risk is very high for exposure and spread and residents should limit activities as much as possible and wear a mask when they go out in public.

There have been 1,576 cases reported in Butler County and 1,981 cases have been reported in Montgomery County.
