Ohio governor tests positive for coronavirus – just before meeting President Trump

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, a Republican, has tested positive for the coronavirus.

According to Cleveland.com, the discovery came as DeWine was on the tarmac preparing to meet President Trump, who is flying into Ohio. DeWine is so far asymptomatic, so the discovery was made as a part of the routine procedures around meeting the president.

DeWine did not meet the President, thanks to those precautious.

DeWine has been notably cautious about the pandemic, especially for a Republican.

Cleveland.com notes:

DeWine, a Republican, has become nationally prominent for his cautious approach to dealing with the coronavirus, including being an early advocate for the wearing of facial masks. To try to encourage the public to get tested, he received a nasal swab on live television in late June as a demonstration. He tested negative the next day.

Officials in the governor’s office said it’s unlikely that many other staffers will have to quarantine as a result of the governor’s positive test. DeWine heads to Columbus twice a week for his coronavirus briefings, but generally works from his home in Cedarville. Most of his staff also work from home. So the only other state officials DeWine likely would come in close contact with include Husted, his security detail and staffers who help with the briefings, Tierney said.

It’s ironic that DeWine would test positive, considering his caution. It just goes to show that many things about the virus are unpredictable at best.

Our best wishes go out to Gov. DeWine and his family.

  1. AOC ….. or the Imphamis & Rediculous Democrat – CORTEZ. Now there and here
    is a Waste of Space. Hard to believe that there were so many people Dumb
    enough to put Her into Office. What a Sad Day that was for our Governmental
    System and Country……….. She is ONLY TROUBLE for the American People with her
    views, comments, ideas, and common sense……. OH – Yeah, there is No Common Sense
    with her.!!!!!!!

    1. AOC? I think that is refers to Anus Of Crocodile.

      After all, she is a crock and what she spews usually comes from an anus.

    2. So, what the hell does ‘aoc’ have to do with this article. The mere mentioning of this miscreant makes me feel ill.
      Now, to the article, with all the precautions De Wine took, how in the hell did he test positive? Is it being confined in an area where the air is being recirculated again and again without being scrubbed? I still believe fresh air, low humidity, and very warm days is better than being confined and breathing through a mask that holds the virus. Mother Nature has a way to make right the things humans screw up!

  2. This statement was very offensive to me:

    DeWine has been notably cautious about the pandemic, especially for a Republican.

    1. True. I am a Republican, and I have been cautious. This is a virus, not a political statement. Stay well, everyone!

  3. I bet the reason that the Ohio governor tested positive is because the testing lab or some one in between contaminated the swab i bet it was a democrat controlled facility that did the test . As long as the democrats are in Washington and have there hands in every thing more people will test positive and as long as the numbers are inflated the more it will look like its spiking

  4. What a dumb statement – that it was a democrat controlled test facility. What is wrong with you? Always pointing the finger at the other party as if they aren’t even American. You see our country is based on a two-party system – what is it about that which you don’t understand.

    1. What Mark is saying is IT SHOULD BE A TWO PARTY SYSTEM IF THAT WERE SO THERE WOULD NOT BE ALL THE INSULT AND THE COUNTRY WOULD BE RUNNING SMOOTHLY WITHOUT SPENDING SO MUCH TIME SCREEMING ABOUT EVERY WORD THAT COMES FROM PRES> TRUMP
