Someone fired a bullet into the home of an official at the Ohio Department of Health

Columbus Dispatch:

Although [the assistant medical director of the Ohio Department of Health] works at the state health department, she's mostly remained behind the scenes during the pandemic. 

There's an ongoing campaign of intimidation in the state:

Before [former director of the Ohio Department of Health] resigned in June, she became the target of threats and anti-Semitic slurs.

People protested outside of [the former director's] home. Some of the protesters showed up with guns.


After [the former director] left her job atop the state health department, [the governor] announced her replacement... But, just hours after she was announced...[the replacement] withdrew her name from consideration.
