Ohio Department of Health - March Update
In March 2022, the Ohio Department of Health announced that it was easing requirements for case reporting by K-12 schools due to the dramatic drop in COVID-19 reported cases and hospitalizations.
The ODH announced that it would no longer require school districts to:
- Maintain a COVID-19 reporting system for parents to report positive COVID-19 cases.
- Have a designated COVID-19 coordinator for the district.
- Notify parents of positive COVID-19 cases among staff, students, or coaches.
- Report positive cases of COVID-19 to their local health department unless the school tests a student for COVID-19 and the result is positive.
The archived Worthington COVID-19 dashboard is still available but will no longer be updated, and some links on the page will no longer be active.
Parents should continue to monitor their children's health and keep them home if they have symptoms or meet any of the criteria listed in this guidance from the Columbus Health Department.
