COLUMBUS, Ohio — On Monday evening, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and First Lady Fran DeWine were exposed to a person who has since tested positive for COVID-19, according to a news release sent on Thursday by the governor’s office.

The release states that neither of the couple have symptoms, and both tested negative for COVID-19 Thursday morning.
