State Reports Three More Possible Coronavirus Cases

Ohio Department of Health officials are awaiting word on three possible cases of coronavirus.  

The patients all became sick within two weeks after traveling to affected areas.  There are still no confirmed cases in Ohio.  Health officials may begin testing for coronavirus this weekend after receiving new test kits. Before now, all tests had to be sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and results take up to a week.  The kits will give results within 48 hours.
