- The governor received his first shot of the Covid-19 vaccine on Thursday
Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte tested positive for Covid-19 Monday after experiencing mild symptoms on Sunday, according to his office.
The Republican governor will isolate for 10 days in accordance with his doctor’s instructions and public health guidance and plans to work from home, his office said in a statement released on Monday.
Montana’s first lady, Susan Gianforte, has also tested positive for Covid-19, according to the governor’s press secretary Brooke Stroyke. The first lady was diagnosed Tuesday after having been tested the day before and exhibiting no symptoms.
The governor received his first shot of the Covid-19 vaccine on Thursday, and — having exhibited no symptoms — he attended Easter service at his church, Stroyke said. He wore a mask throughout the service and had no close contacts there aside from members of his family, she added.
The governor’s staff was set to be tested for the virus Tuesday morning as a precautionary measure and everyone with whom the governor has come in close contact has been notified.
