COLUMBUS – The Ohio Department of Health will move all COVID-19 information from coronavirus.ohio.gov to the department’s website, the agency announced.

All weekly COVID-19 statistics and reports will be moved to the DataOhio COVID-19 reporting page, said Department of Health Director Dr. Bruce Vanderhoff. All visitors to coronavirus.ohio.org will be automatically redirected to the department’s website, he said.

After the federal government declared the COVID-19 public health emergency in January 2020, the department launched coronavirus.ohio.gov as a clearinghouse. When the federal government declared the end of the public health emergency in May, the department began transitioning that website into a series of pages on the department’s and DataOhio’s websites.

“The Ohio Department of Health remains committed to monitoring and sharing key data about COVID-19.” Vanderhoff said. “In fact, COVID-19 remains a major driver of respiratory illnesses along with other viruses such as influenza and RSV, for which important information is also available on our website.”

The new site contains links to COVID-19 statistics and dashboards that will continue to be updated weekly, as well as the latest guidance on prevention, testing, treatment and vaccines, which will also continue to be updated.

A similar transition took place after the last global pandemic, H1N1. In 2009, the department created the flu.ohio.gov website which in early 2011 moved to the department’s website.
