Covid-19 has killed 2.8 million people across the globe. Some of them were our friends or family members. Over 10,000 people in Portage County have tested positive for Covid-19, and many more may have had it and transmitted it without knowing. Each of us has been disrupted by it.

This timeline is a chronicle of the pandemic in our community. It contains links to past coverage and milestones of the outbreak in Portage County and Ohio. We have also saved this timeline to have a record of this year for posterity.
