A Ohio family is reminding people to stay home when they don’t feel well after their grandmother contracted COVID-19 while playing cards with friends—including one attendee who hid the fact that they had COVID-19. The grandmother, 82-year-old Barbara Bartolovich, later died from the virus.
Bartolovich’s granddaughter Lauren Nash told ABC‘s Detroit affiliate WXYZ that her grandmother took a lot of precautions during the pandemic, including getting vaccinated and only socializing with people who were also being safe about COVID.
Nash said that Bartolovich decided to go to a card game with friends, but only after making sure that everyone who would be there was vaccinated. But one card player had tested positive for COVID-19 and didn’t tell anyone.
