Ohio will use $50 million dollars in federal pandemic aid to buy 2 million at-home rapid coronavirus test to help local health departments respond faster to testing needs.
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine made 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. The results will be recorded with the Ohio Department of Health.
Governor DeWine says 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.
The Buckeye 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.
