Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and his wife, Pamela, have tested positive for COVID-19, the governor’s office said Friday.

The Democratic governor and first lady received nasal swab tests Thursday afternoon after learning a staff member who works in their living quarters became infected with the virus, his office said.

The article goes on to state the following:

Northam is currently asymptomatic, while his wife is experiencing mild symptoms, the office said.

In a series of Twitter posts Friday morning, Northam announced, “On Wednesday evening, @FirstLadyVA and I were notified that a member of our official residence staff had developed symptoms and tested positive for #COVID19. We both received PCR nasal swab tests yesterday and both tested positive.”

He continued, “Pam is experiencing mild symptoms, and I am asymptomatic. Per @VDHgov guidelines, we will isolate at home for 10 days and then reevaluate our symptoms. I am in constant contact with my cabinet and staff, and will continue working from the Executive Mansion.

“As I have been reminding Virginians throughout this crisis, #COVID19 is very real and very contagious. We are grateful for your thoughts and support, but the best thing you can do for us—and most importantly, for your fellow Virginians—is to take this virus seriously.”
