Ohio officials have focused testing resources in high-risk areas, like Cuyahoga County and other more populated areas.

But what about less populated rural Ohio communities? Geauga County, for example, remains at Level 1 out of 4 in the state’s risk assessment, even as adjacent counties have seen large increases in COVID-19 cases.

Does that actually mean there’s less coronavirus spread there?

Not necessarily, said Geauga County Health Commissioner Tom Quade.
