Today, Minority Leader Kenny Yuko (D-Richmond Heights) released the following statement after Governor Mike DeWine announced that three patients in Cuyahoga County tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19):
“Governor DeWine just confirmed that three people in Cuyahoga County were diagnosed with coronavirus. They are the only cases diagnosed in Ohio so far. I would like to encourage everyone to be extra vigilant and take precautions to avoid spreading the virus in our communities. The Ohio Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control have information about the best preventative measures on their websites. If you have more questions, ODH has activated a coronavirus hotline, which you can reach at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634).
“We should do everything we can to support our local health departments, doctors, nurses and all other health care providers by making sure they have all the resources they need. I look forward to working with the administration to make sure residents in Northeast Ohio and across the state are safe and as prepared as possible.”
