“This morning the governor tested positive for COVID-19 after showing mild symptoms,” the statement said.
Newsom plans to continue working remotely and will remain isolated until at least June 2 and “until he tests negative,” the statement said.
“The governor has also received a prescription for Paxlovid, the antiviral that has been shown to be effective against COVID-19, and will begin his 5-day regimen immediately,” his office said. “Governor Newsom is vaccinated and has received two booster shots, including as recently as May 18.”
This morning I tested positive for COVID-19 and am currently experiencing mild symptoms. Grateful to be vaccinated and for treatments like Paxlovid.
I am following health guidelines and will isolate myself while working remotely.
Wishing everyone a safe and healthy Memorial Day weekend.
