A statewide mandated face covering order is in place. All individuals in Ohio must wear facial coverings in public at all times. — At an indoor location that is not a residence. — Outdoors, but unable to maintain 6-foot social distance from people who are not household members. — Waiting for, riding, driving, or operating public transportation, such as a taxi, a car service, or a private car used for ride-sharing. The order requires those 10 years old or older to wear a mask. Antibody testing currently is available to the public. As Wyandot County Public Health receives the results of these tests, it will be reported using specific criteria. If the patient received a positive antibody test and had been in close contact with a lab-confirmed case, linked to a community outbreak or exhibited symptoms of COVID-19, the case will be labeled as probable. A positive antibody test result meeting none of these conditions will be considered a suspected case.
