Ryan Weinhaus, 32, said he, his wife, brother, and parents were all diagnosed with COVID-19 this month -- with his 63-year-old mother Jane the first family member to be infected.
She reportedly developed a cough in mid-March and spend days on a ventilator at a local hospital, according to KSDK.
Monday was the first day she came off the ventilator at the ICU. The family believes Jane got the virus at Temple Israel's Deutsch Early Childhood Center, where she works as a teacher, the station reported.
Meanwhile, other teachers and one parent tested positive at the preschool, according to Today.
Ryan said he and his wife Brittanie determined they had the virus next while vacationing in Arizona.
“Shortness of breath has been a commonality between all of us. My father was rushed to ER last week with shortness of breath. Ironically, he’s in ICU just two doors down from my mom," he told Fox 2 Now.
Ryan said he wants people to know they should stay home and not "be selfish."
“This is super-serious. While I’m cautiously optimistic that we’re going to be OK, we have to use our best judgment,” Ryan said, according to the station. “Staying inside, don’t be selfish, don’t just think about yourself, think about the people you could be infecting, thinking that you’re invincible.”
