While some states last week saw an increase in first-time jobless claims, initial claims in Oklahoma declined 22% from the previous week, according to a government report.

"The advance number for seasonally adjusted insured unemployment during the week ending October 31 was 6,786,000, a decrease of 436,000 from the previous week's revised level".

Continued unemployment numbers reflect the total number of unemployed workers eligible for and receiving benefits after their initial claim. That increase marks the largest spike in new claims since the week of March 21, the department reported Thursday.

The state's weekly unemployment claims prior to COVID-19 averaged between 200 and 300.

The latest jobless claims figures from the Labor Department, which cover the week ending November 7, show that 709,000 workers sought aid last week, about four-times the pre-crisis level.

New jobless claims in Washington state and Spokane County posted double-digit increases last week as seasonal layoffs continued in the agriculture and construction industries. The nationwide jobs report showed a total of 709,000 people sought unemployment benefits last week across the country.

As coronavirus cases soar in Ohio, Republican Gov. Mike DeWine has warned he could order another shutdown of restaurants and bars.

It marked the fourth time in the past 34 weeks that the number has dipped below 800,000, and the 12th time it has come in below 1 million. Fewer than 5% of those claims have not yet been processed, according to the department.

Since the pandemic started, ODJFS has distributed more than $7.2 billion in unemployment compensation payments to more than 839,000 Ohioans.
