(8-6-20) Ohio Governor Mike DeWine tested positive today for COVID 19. The governor will undergo a second test in Columbus later today.

DeWine took a test for COVID-19 as part of the standard protocol to greet President Donald Trump on the tarmac at Burke Lakefront Airport in Cleveland. Lt. Gov. Jon Husted’s test came back negative; First Lady Fran DeWine was not scheduled to meet the president so she was not tested but will be as well.

DeWine, who is a Republican heard from the other side of the aisle.

A statement from Ohio Democratic Party said

“We know how hard [DeWine]‘s been working to keep Ohioans safe, and this is just one more reminder that this virus can impact everyone. As fellow Ohioans, we stand with and support our governor and his family at this time.”

Celina native  State Auditor Keith Faber said he tested negative a week ago.

Apparently social distancing and wearing a mask will NOT prevent you from catching the virus.
