COLUMBUS, OH - A proposal by Ohio House Republicans to require individuals’ written consent for the state to track the spread of the coronavirus has been rejected by fellow Republicans in the Ohio Senate.
The House would have required in-writing permission before the Health Department could undertake what is known as contract tracing. This technique allows investigators to contact people who have been in close and recent proximity to someone who tests positive for COVID-19.
The proposal reflects the disagreement many conservative House Republicans have with Governor Mike DeWine’s response to the coronavirus, which they feel has gone too far.
