Connie Smith-Monahan was suspected of possibly having COVID-19, and her work with a local school forced its closure before many local districts shut down entirely.

She ultimately tested negative, but from hospital rooms to strict isolation, Smith-Monahan waited days after going through two separate coronavirus tests.

In an interview with Cincinnati Edition, Smith-Monahan shares the frustration and uncertainty that followed her on her journey to find out whether she had the novel coronavirus. 

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
