On April 13, 2020, Governor Mike DeWine announced that nursing home and long-term care facilities must notify families and caregivers of all residents when an employee or resident tests positive for COVID-19. This notification must be completed within 24 hours.
Additionally, the state will begin releasing the names and addresses of all long-term care facilities and nursing homes that have a minimum of one resident or employee case of COVID-19. The state will not be reporting numbers of cases or deaths related to specific homes.
