Last week, Whitmer tested negative for the virus after her husband, Marc Mallory, tested positive on Tuesday. Gilchrist, a Democrat who’s second in command to Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, has been vaccinated and received a booster dose, he said Sunday. firstname.lastname@example.org
Gilchrist said his 2-year-old daughter, Ruby, had begun to experience a runny nose and a mild fever, so members of his family took COVID-19 tests. “This morning, I tested positive for COVID-19,” the lieutenant governor said in a video on Twitter. “Since the beginning, I have been open and transparent about how this virus has impacted people in my life. I take this very seriously. And I feel that it is important to share my story.”
“I will be isolating for the appropriate amount of time,” he said. “And I will continue to maintain a virtual work schedule.” On Friday, Michigan reported 40,692 new COVID-19 cases over two days, a record for the highest daily average of cases since the pandemic began.
