Gov. Eric Holcomb and first lady Janet Holcomb have tested negative for COVID-19, the Governor’s Office said Friday afternoon.
The Holcombs began quarantining Tuesday after several members of their security detail tested positive for the virus and they were determined to be close contacts of the infected individuals.
The governor and first lady received both an Abbott rapid test and a nasopharyngeal PCR test and had negative results on both.
They are doing well and are not experiencing symptoms.
Under advice from state health officials, the Holcombs will not be tested again unless they develop symptoms.
The Governor’s Office said the couple will continue their 14-day quarantine and can resume a normal schedule with vigilance about masking and social distancing on Dec. 1.
