Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz returned to work in his city office Monday upon ending his mandatory quarantine period after testing positive for the novel coronavirus earlier this month.

Montz announced Oct. 7 that he had tested positive for COVID-19 and was entering a quarantine period of at least 10 days.

“Overall, I feel as though I am back to about 75% of where I was pre-COVID-19 infection, however my sense of taste and smell are both still completely gone,” Montz told on Friday.

Montz also said his cough is still lingering, “but that is to be expected.”

“Overall I consider myself very fortunate to only have had mild to moderate symptoms during my time with an active coronavirus infection,” the mayor added.
