The DeWines and Husted agreed that the test is not as uncomfortable as its made out to be.
The nasal swab tests were performed by members of the Ohio National Guard.
“If you want the economy to continue to move, if you want to continue to get people back to work the number one most important thing you can do is to keep this virus from spreading. We have control of this, 11.7 million Ohioans control how fast this virus will spread,” DeWine said.
