Loveland Schools are part of the Hamilton County Public Health district. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine is concerned about Hamilton County trending from the Red zone into the Purple zone of critical COVID-19 cases. With the announcement today of two more positive cases among LHS students, it seems Loveland High School is currently trending upward in COVID cases as well. The numbers remain low – a total of seven cases reported from Loveland High School students this week – but there is no denying a rise from near zero cases in the first several weeks of the school year. Additionally, the new cases at the high school resulted in cancellation of the remaining two scheduled Loveland Tiger Fall 2020 Football games bringing the season to an abrupt end.
Here is the COVID Update released by Loveland Schools this afternoon:
