Two county fairs in Ohio report COVID-19 outbreaks




The Pickaway and Clinton county fairs are investigating separate COVID-19 outbreaks.

The Clinton County Health District is investigating a “cluster” of cases from people who attended the fair, which ran from July 11 to July 18.

A spokesman for the department said he’s aware of at least three cases, though the investigation is ongoing.

The Columbus Dispatch reported Thursday that 22 cases of COVID-19, and one possible death, trace back to attendees of the Pickaway County Fair last month.

A report from the health department found there was a lack of implementation of infection control precautions like requiring masks and limiting crowd sizes.
