LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Democratic governor said in a statement that she tested positive for the virus Monday evening and is experiencing mild symptoms. Whitmer said she plans to follow proper guidance and protocols, while maintaining a remote schedule.

Whitmer said all of her close contacts from Monday will be notified.

“I am grateful for the support of my family, my staff, and the vaccine for offering me robust protection against the virus,” Whitmer said. “I look forward to getting back to work in person, meeting with constituents, and keeping Michigan on the move.”

Whitmer said she is fully vaccinated and has received two booster shots.

“I encourage my fellow Michiganders to get vaccinated and boosted,” Whitmer said.

I’m surprised she didn’t get it sooner. She doesn’t follow the same rules that we had to endure during the lockdown. She traveled to Florida to see her father, she had lunch with her buddies, pushing her tables together definitely not following the 6’ space we were instructed to follow. Oh that’s right this is the governor of Michigan, she doesn’t have to follow the rules, she makes them.

coronaviruses have been around for eons. there's nothing unique about number 19. it's hardly more than a common cold. get over it and go on with life


Very convenient so many politicians are just now getting covid, ELECTION time, get it? Anyone ever hear of the flu or a cold? Would never trust those tests, they are approved by the RATs. need I say more?
