Governor DeWine Issues Statement on Abbott's BinaxNOW Tests

(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Ohio Governor Mike DeWine today issued a statement following the White House’s announcement regarding Abbott BinaxNOW tests:

“We appreciate the Trump Administration providing millions of these innovative tests to Ohioans and our administration will continue to work on a plan to best incorporate them into our overall testing strategy in the coming days.  Making a rapid, low-cost test available, demonstrates Abbott’s ingenuity and addresses our critical need to rapidly identify who has the virus. By knowing who is COVID-19-positive, especially among those in vulnerable communities, we can take immediate steps to limit the spread and control its impact.”
