On Father’s Day this past June, Davonne Irion’s dad, John Marsh, was admitted to a hospital from his nursing home in St. Petersburg.
Irion, who lives in Clearwater, called the hospital to get his diagnosis. The woman who took her call asked her to wait a moment.
"It seemed like forever," Irion recalled. "She came back on the phone and said your father's tested positive."
Her father had tested positive for COVID-19.
