  • Jobless claims fall to 751,000, lowest level since March

For the week of October 18-24, 17,531 initial jobless claims were submitted in the state, down slightly from the 17,598 new claims filed during the week of October 4-9, according to an Ohio Department of Job and Family Services release.

New jobless claims in Florida last week dipped by nearly a quarter from the previous week, according to figures released Thursday from the U.S. Department of Labor.

But their decline has slowed over the past few months as the pandemic continues - and starts to worsen again.
