As a new strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) swept through the world in 2020, preparedness plans, masking policies and more public policy changed just as quickly. WVXU has covered the pandemic's impact on the Tri-State from the very beginning, when on March 3, 2020, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine barred spectators from attending the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus over concerns about the virus, even though Ohio had yet to confirm a single case of COVID-19.

Cincinnati Edition speaks with UC Health researchers Dr. Aaron Grossman, assistant professor in the Department of Neurology and Rehabilitative Medicine and a UC Health physician; and Dr. Matthew Smith, a neuro-critical care fellow and UC Health physician; about their just-completed report that offers guidelines for providing lifesaving treatment to stroke patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Their study addressed whether current stroke treatment protocols should be modified to keep both patients and staff safe from the spread of COVID-19.   Their work was published in Stroke, a journal of the American Heart and American Stroke associations.
