Coronavirus

Ohio’s top ZIP for coronavirus as of Tuesday is in Marion County

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – If your address ends with ZIP Code 43201, you live in Ohio’s most affected place with coronavirus outside a state prison.

That ZIP, just east of The Ohio State University campus in a large swath of northern Columbus, has reported the second-most COVID-19 cases in Ohio, according to ZIP Code data newly published by the Ohio Department of Health.

Ohio’s top ZIP for coronavirus as of Tuesday is Marion County’s 43302, with 4,138 reported cases. 1,980 (48%) of those cases, however, are from inmates at Marion Correctional Institution and adjacent North Central Correction Complex, according to data as of Tuesday from the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.

The second-highest ZIP is Columbus’s 43201, with 3,115 cases. However, the “Unknown” category bests it with 4,095 cases.

Use the interactive map below to search ZIP Codes. Note: For privacy reasons, Ohio does not release data for ZIP Codes with fewer than 100 people or fewer than five cases. Health advisory levels for each ZIP are the levels of that ZIP’s main county.

The map above will be permanently located on NBC4’s coronavirus page in a slideshow of coronavirus visualizations. It will be updated every weekday.

Of the top 10 ZIPs that have reported cases, seven are fully or partially in Franklin County, including 43146 in rural Orient. That ZIP, however, includes Pickaway Correctional Institution and the adjected Correctional Reception Center.

Those two facilities have reported 2,013 cases of COVID-19 as of Tuesday, making up 71% of the ZIP Code’s 2,845 cases.
