1. We are in west central OH, near Lima.

Iíve been watching to see when there would be positive tests here in OH. The state website showed possible cases being tested, and a few cleared, for several days, and now itís finally arrived.

Sorry--in Columbus area and have been saying that it's all around around us so it's probably been here for several days.

3. I meant that it's finally confirmed as arrived...

...I should have been more clear. Iím sure itís been here, and more prevalent than we knew, for some time now.
Iím no longer working and am able to pretty much stay home, but hubby still works and is in close contact with people constantly. His first order of duty upon coming home from work is to drop everything at the door and wash his hands before touching anything in the house. Then the doorknobs he touched get cleaned.

5. Yes, we are in agreement

We all knew it was a matter of time and testing before confirmation.

And I'm glad my husband is doing more of his computer support work from the basement--lots can be done now remotely without him going out and about. My biggest fear is for my 89-year old mom; her health isn't the greatest and I have to run errands for her a couple times a week.

6. My parents are in assisted living in IL

Itís a very expensive, fancy assisted living facility (genuinely so happy they can afford it). But I donít think the virus cares how much money one has, or who the healthcare workers and other staff interact with when they go home every night.
Both parents are in their 90s. Dad has cancer and mom has dementia. I was making the 4.5 hr drive once a month to visit for a week each time, but Iíve stopped that now. Itís heartbreaking, but I donít want to bring the virus to them. My sister and brother still live in their area so they are checking in briefly a few times a week by phone, and meeting them outside for short visits...keeping a few feet away.

9. My sis in law is in a nursing home. in Cuyahoga County...she had a102 fever

and needs to be tested...she is 68 but in bad shape. Hubs who is smart said skype and phone only ...no visits when this thing hit...didn't want to get it and also didn't want a vulnerable nursing home to be subject to what happened in Washington state if we had it. Trump is a murderer. There is help with getting tested...still hard. I am in Bedford.

Coronavirus is in Ohio. The Department of Health opened a call center. The phone number is is 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634). The state announced on Thursday evening that three new patients are being tested for coronavirus.
