Twenty seven staffers at OSU East Hospital have tested positive for the coronavirus. The school says an internal review found the staffers worked in the patient care unit between December 20 and January 1. Six patients have also tested positive after testing negative upon admission. Officials are conducting contact tracing and testing of all staff and patients who spent significant time in the unit.
