DeWine Announces Plans to Drastically Expand COVID-19 Testing

The state's agreement with Thermo Fisher will expand testing access

Earlier this week, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced the formation of a Testing Strike Team to expand the state's coronavirus testing.

It didn't take long for the team -- led by former Ohio Governors Richard Celeste and Bob Taft -- to show results.

On Friday, DeWine announced that the state has reached an agreement with Thermo Fisher to increase the state's access to testing reagents. Additionally, DeWine announced that through a collaborative effort with the Ohio Manufacturers Association, the Roe Dental Lab in Cleveland will help manufacture up to one million swabs to aid the state's testing efforts.
