Several staffers in Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s office have tested positive for the coronavirus, a spokesperson confirmed.
“While we cannot disclose any personal health information, there are three confirmed COVID-19 cases affecting members of [Hogan’s] staff,” Kata Hall, Hogan’s deputy communications director, tweeted Wednesday. “All testing, notification, contact tracing, and quarantining protocols have been followed in accordance with CDC guidance.”
The governor and lieutenant governor both received COVID tests, which came back negative, Hall said, adding that all members of the governor’s staff are fully vaccinated.
“A fourth staff member who received a positive rapid antigen test has received a negative confirmatory PCR test,” she tweeted. “All those affected are feeling fine.”
Hogan, a cancer survivor, said Sunday that he has received a vaccine booster shot on the advice of his doctors.
