The Williams County Health Department has developed community talking points in an effort to provide useful information as we work together to prevent COVID-19 spread in our community.
- In the past 7 days (June 1st – June 8th), there have been 7 new cases, 0 hospitalizations, & 1 death reported. Death data that was reported this week was delayed due to the updated ODH death reporting system changes. As of 6/2, Williams County is ranked #43 out of 88 counties based on its cases per capita. Williams County has had 49.1 cases per 100,000 population in the last 2 weeks (no longer high incidence).
