“According to, as of May 4, Preble County, has experienced one tragic death attributed to the coronavirus,” Hach noted. “While our deepest sympathy goes out to the victim’s loved ones, Preble County is not experiencing the spread of the disease at a pandemic rate, in spite of Dr. Acton’s claim that 40-70 percentage of us would get COVID-19, regardless of restrictions. We must be released to resume life as usual.”
