More Covid Aid In OH

Ohio will use $50 million dollars in federal pandemic aid to buy 2 million at-home rapid coronavirus tests…to help local health departments respond faster to testing needs. Gov. DeWine makes the announcement. The at-home test kits are rapid antigen tests with results available in about 15 minutes. Users will receive online guidance to take them…and the results will be recorded with the Ohio Department of Health. The governor added the state’s 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. pandemic curfew, due to expire in a couple days, will be extended, though he didn’t provide details. At the same time…the state is wrestling with huge numbers of fraudulent unemployment claims being filed for federal pandemic aid. Of 1.4 million of those claims, nearly 800,000 have been flagged as fraudulent.
