More Than 200 Ohioans Under Quarantine Amid Coronavirus Concerns
The Ohio Department of Health says more than 200 people are being self-quarantined and monitored for possible coronavirus symptoms.
Ohio Public Radio's Andy Chow reports.
212 people in Ohio who recently traveled to China are now in self-quarantine to watch for symptoms of COVID-19, the disease caused by coronavirus.
Doctor Andrew Thomas at the OSU Wexner Medical Center says a quarantine is now something that people looking at traveling to countries with confirmed coronavirus cases have to think about.
Thomas: "There is a concern of what happens when I come back if I have to self-quarantine for 14 days, I can't go to work, I can't go to school. Those are really practical considerations."
So far all six people in Ohio tested for coronavirus have come back negative.
