Walsh was previously diagnosed with breast cancer approximately five years ago and had to undergo five months of chemotherapy during treatment.

The coronavirus was just as difficult, Walsh described.

Walsh is unsure how she became infected with the coronavirus because she said all of the appropriate health safety recommendations were taken.

She has served as the Summit County prosecutor since her election in 2000
