Ohio coronavirus

A look at Ohio's coronavirus color-coded map on Jan. 21.

Gov. Mike DeWine on Thursday said that Ohio's 10 p.m.-5 a.m. curfew will have to continue past Jan. 23.
 
"The next step will probably be to take it to 11 p.m.," he said in also expressing concern about current coronavirus case numbers and a new variant of COVID-19.
 
"With cases still at a very high rate, we cannot at this point change the curfew as much as I would like to do that," DeWine said at his briefing updating Ohio's coronavirus response.
 
Also on Thursday, DeWine presented Ohio's updated map for the color-coded coronavirus advisory system.
 
"Thankfully, no county is seeing their status worsen," he said. "We have 83 counties at red, four counties at orange, and one county (Hamilton) still at purple."
 
Richland County remained "red," which represents very high exposure and spread of COVID-19.
