UNDERSTANDING THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 IN OHIO
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected nearly every facet of society, unveiling how current systems have and continue to fail communities in Ohio and across the country. Ohio’s elected officials like Governor Mike DeWine, Lieutenant Governor John Husted, Attorney General David Yost, and the Director of the Ohio Department of Health Dr. Amy Acton have been applauded for the state’s early response efforts. However, with the increase in testing and data collection and the unfortunate exploitation of COVID-19 by some politicians, it has become clear that many of Ohio’s most marginalized communities need more to be healthy and safe — now and long before this pandemic hit.
