Ohio Public Health Advisory System


♦ ♦ ♦ Lorain County is currently at a Level 3 Public Emergency ♦ ♦ ♦
Masks/face coverings are required when in public.
Very exposure and spread – Limit activities as much as possible


The Public Health Advisory Alert System is a color-coded system designed to supplement existing statewide orders through a data-driven framework to assess the degree of the virus’ spread and to engage and empower individuals, businesses, communities, local governments, and others in their response and actions.  The system consists of four levels that provide Ohioans with guidance as to the severity of the problem in the counties in which they live.  The levels are determined by seven data indicators that identify the risk level for each county and a corresponding color code to represent that risk level.
