VIRGINA (WDVM) — Governor Ralph Northam posted an update on Twitter on Monday after he and his wife, Pamela Northam, tested positive for COVID-19 last week.
“This is a reminder this virus is still out there,” said the governor. “We want you all to remain vigilant, continue to wear your mask, keep your distance, continue to wash your hands.”
“I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you across Virginia and this country for the well wishes and prayers, we certainly appreciate that,” said the governor. “That’s making us feel better. We’re on the mend and feel good, our spirits are good, and we continue to do the work of Virginia.”
Gov. Northam said he’s continued to meet with his cabinet and his staff (virtually) while he and his wife are in quarantine.
