You can see the full list on the Ohio Department of Health’s coronavirus website.

Last weekend, the owners of several nursing homes that were affected by the virus sent a letter, asking the state to do more to secure them testing and protective equipment.

According to the group, they can’t purchase the items due to a disruption in the supply chain. Test kits and PPE allocation are controlled by government agencies, the group says.

Mahoning County Health Commissioner Ryan Tekac said the county recently received more than 700 test kits that could be used by nursing homes, though some nursing homes have also made their own arrangments for testing.

Late last week, Trumbull County’s Emergency Operations Center also received seven pallets of protective equipment from the Ohio Emergency Management Agency.

All of it is going to nursing homes and other health care, extended and congregate living facilities.

That equipment was delivered to nursing homes like O’Brien Memorial in Masury, which had 17 cases of COVID-19 among residents — the most reported in Trumbull County.
