Statement made by Democratic State Rep.

John Patterson in response about his

hospitalization with COVID-19

“As someone who has retired from the classroom, I know there are moments in life
when minds can be changed. Let this be one of those moments.

COVID-19 is real. Rep. Rogers and I now personally understand its power over the
body. All Ohioans need to be putting others ahead of self during this dangerous time. I
urge everyone to abide by the guidelines for the health and safety of all. Let this be a
teachable moment for all of us.”
