Travelers are encouraged to contact their airlines directly for flight status, changes, and other details.

There are now 88 confirmed cases in 19 Ohio counties. There are eight in Butler County, but none in Hamilton, Warren, Clermont, Brown, Adams, Highland or Clinton counties.

Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton says testing is being limited to those already in the hospital, those who are sickest, and those most at risk.
