Governor Whitmer Statement on Testing Positive for COVID-19


LANSING, Mich. — yesterday, Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued the following statement after testing positive for COVID-19.  

 

yesterday, I tested positive for COVID-19.  

 

Thankfully, I am only experiencing mild symptoms after being fully vaccinated and twice boosted. 

 

After speaking with a state doctor, I will follow the proper guidance and protocols, while maintaining a remote schedule to continue getting things done for the people of Michigan. I last tested for COVID this afternoon, when I tested negative. Following standard protocol, all of my close contacts from today will be informed. 

 

I am grateful for the support of my family, my staff, and the vaccine for offering me robust protection against the virus. I look forward to getting back to work in person, meeting with constituents, and keeping Michigan on the move. 

 

“I encourage my fellow Michiganders to get vaccinated and boosted.”
