New Mexico Governor Lujan Grishman has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, Grishman will remain in isolation and refrain from celebrating Thanksgiving with her family.
“I am very grateful to be experiencing only mild symptoms after being fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19, including the latest bivalent booster,” Grisham said, according to ABC affiliate, KVIA.
“While testing positive just before the Thanksgiving holiday is disappointing, I know that I am protecting my loved ones by isolating and not joining them for holiday festivities.”
Grisham is not the only governor to test positive for coronavirus during the holiday season. Following a trip to Vietnam, Oregon Governor Kate Brown tested positive for COVID-19.
“After returning from Vietnam, Dan and I have tested positive for COVID-19,” Governor Kate Bron tweeted.
“We are recuperating at home and, while this changes our Thanksgiving plans, we are grateful for effective vaccines and boosters that are helping ensure our symptoms don’t become serious.”
