"I am proud to help bring two free, community checkups to Ohio's 8th House district - one to East Cleveland and then, six-days later, to the City of Euclid.  Testing is one of the critical strategies to defeat COVID-19.  Unfortunately it has not been available to nearly enough Ohioans.  These two events will help change that painful reality.  Please use the registration links as soon as possible as spots will be limited.   Also please continue to practice social distancing and wear masks whenever possible.  We will get through this together but we still have a long road to travel.  Let's make sure as many of us as possible complete the journey and make it to our shared goal of beating Coronavirus," said Rep. Smith.
