. 3rd Test this week
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and First Lady Fran DeWine have tested negative for COVID-19 in a PCR test administered and run by Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center today.
The test results today Saturday, August 8, 2020 followed the negative PCR test results for the Governor and First Lady on Thursday.
The PCR tests taken Thursday were negative for the Governor, First Lady, and staff members, and were run on lab machines twice with results coming in negative both times.
On Thursday morning in Cleveland, following the testing protocol established to be able to greet the President, Governor DeWine took a rapid antigen test and the results reported back for that test were a false positive.
Meanwhile, Governor DeWine has raised questions concerning antigen and PCT tests, saying that “My positive antigen test and negative PCR test brought up a lot of questions about these two types of COVID19 tests.”
