Michigan Gov. Whitmer reportedly isolating after husband’s positive COVID-19 test

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is currently isolating after her husband, Marc Mallory, tested positive for the coronavirus according to a spokesman on Tuesday.

“Today, the first gentleman tested positive for COVID-19 after feeling under the weather,” said Whitmer’s spokesman Bobby Leddy. “After the positive test, Gov. Whitmer took a rapid test, which came back negative, and is awaiting the results of a PCR test out of an abundance of caution.”

Whitmer’s husband is a retired dentist. Her family was hit with the coronavirus as the rate of cases in the state and across the nation is increasing rapidly.

“Like so many families around the country, the governor and her husband took extra precautions to limit contact with others to stay safe over the holidays as they celebrated Christmas with their immediate family members in Michigan,” Leddy continued in the statement.

“Thankfully, the entire family is fully vaccinated and boosted, so the governor has not tested positive and is not experiencing symptoms. Until the PCR test comes back, the governor is isolating in a separate area of the house and has taken steps to complete contact tracing to keep others safe.” 

Whitmer is currently preparing for her annual State of the State address, which is scheduled to take place later this month. The governor has not yet announced on what date that address will take place, nor has she said whether the speech will be delivered remotely or in person.
