COLUMBUS, Ohio — Gov. Mike DeWine released Thursday’s list of Top 10 Ohio Counties Ranked by Highest Occurrence and there were no Northeast Ohio counties included on it, once again.

The 10 counties on the list are as follows:

  1. Putnam
  2. Butler
  3. Mercer
  4. Shelby
  5. Montgomery
  6. Auglaize
  7. Franklin
  8. Henry
  9. Meigs
  10. Darke

Many of the counties on the list are rural, which is a trend DeWine noted last week as well.

During DeWine’s most recent updates of the Top 10 list, Northeast Ohio counties were not included, neither on Sept. 3 or Sept. 1.

Despite moving from orange Level 2 to red Level 3 this week, Summit County was not included on the Top 10 list.
