The lieutenant governor said she started feeling ill on Thursday morning and immediately began to self-quarantine. According to her tweet, she got tested on Friday and received the positive result on Saturday.
“I’m fortunate to have had only mild symptoms and I’m already feeling much better. David has taken GREAT care of me! As careful as I’ve been, this really does show how easily the virus is spread. Please continue to be diligent in keeping yourselves and your loved ones safe. If you’re showing any symptoms at all, the best thing to do is to get tested right away! There are testing sites readily available all across the state,” Evette tweeted.
