Gov. Gavin Newsom has tested positive for COVID-19, his office said Saturday.
“This morning, the governor tested positive for COVID-19 after exhibiting mild symptoms,” the statement said.
Newsom plans to continue to work remotely, and will remain in isolation at least through June 2 and “until he tests negative,” the statement said.
“The governor has also received a prescription for Paxlovid, the antiviral that has been proven effective against COVID-19, and will begin his 5-day regimen immediately,” his office said. “Governor Newsom is vaccinated and has received two booster shots, including as recently as May 18.”
