The state ended up reaching the 50-per-100,000 goal around the same time, anyway, with new infections dropping below the benchmark during the two-week period ending June 4.
The rate was as high as 845.5 per 100,000 in mid-December.
The most recent data from ODH shows 61 of the 88 counties in Ohio exceed 50 infections per 100,000 residents. Those exceeding the threshold in Northeast Ohio include Cuyahoga County and each of its surrounding counties: Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage and Summit.
