(Columbus) - Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has said there's a good chance that Cuyahoga County will go to purple, the highest level in the state's level system of coronavirus cases. So, what does that mean?
A county that is purple, or Level 4, has reached nearly all of the state's guidelines for exposure and spread of COVID-19. There will be no mandates for closing businesses, but the state suggests that in purple counties, people stay home as much as possible, going out for only supplies and services.
If Cuyahoga County goes to purple, many more school districts will go to remote-only learning, as suggested by the Cuyahoga County Board of Health.
The state updates its map during the Governor's Thursday 2 p.m. news briefing.
