Health Officials Confirm Second COVID-19 Case In Columbus


The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Ohio now stands at 67. 

Those include a second Columbus resident, a 23-year-old woman who health officials say had underlying health conditions.  She is being treated at a local hospital. She had not traveled or been exposed to an area with a high number of cases. Health officials say this is a sign of 'community spread'. Patients are currently in isolation in 16 counties.  There have been no coronavirus-related deaths in the state.
