Missouri Gov. Mike Parson announced Wednesday afternoon that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.
His wife, Teresa, also tested positive after displaying mild symptoms, described as “the sniffles,” earlier in the day. She decided to take a rapid test, and the results came back positive, Parson’s staff said.
The governor said he does not have any symptoms at this time and feels fine. He is in isolation and is postponing all future events, including a gubernatorial debate that was scheduled for Friday.
