Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz provided an update on his health Thursday afternoon after testing positive for the novel coronavirus last week.
“Today represents the first day since my coronavirus diagnosis that I’ve felt a marked improvement in my overall health,” Montz wrote in a post to Twitter.
“My energy level remains low and the cough is still pretty severe, but most of the other symptoms have dissipated.”
The mayor announced last Wednesday that he had received a positive COVID-19 test result from Tiffin Mercy Hospital.
Montz is remaining in quarantine at least until Oct. 17, according to City Administrator Dale Thornton.
Also in his tweet Thursday, Montz thanked people for their well wishes and prayers. “I truly do appreciate them,” the mayor said.
