Weekly Butler County COVID-19 Report 

Cases have gone down somewhat this week but this could largely be attributed to the pattern settling after a Thanksgiving spike. 

It is too early to tell whether cases will continue to rise or this represents a peak in a surge. The extremely high positivity rates indicate that it is not the peak in cases. The positivity rate is now the highest that it's been in the year 2021.

The spike in our cases is unrelated to the backlog of reporting that occurred at ODH. Our cases are attributed to the Date of Event and not date of report, so all cases were moved back to their appropriate date.
