St. Louis County news, Missouri news.

A Missouri family has been infected with coronavirus after five members tested positive for COVID-19 including the parents, their two adult sons, and their daughter-in-law.

32-year-old Ryan Weinhaus said that his parents, Michael and Jane Weinhaus, are on a ventilator in the ICU at Missouri Baptist Hospital while he, his wife and his brother are in quarantine, dealing with fever, aches, and shortness of breath but recovering.

“I did not expect myself to test positive or have some of these symptoms, but it can happen to anybody,” Weinhaus said. “It’s not just elderly individuals.”

The family may have contracted the virus from Jane’s coworkers at Temple Israel’s Deutsch Early Childhood Center where several teachers have tested positive.
