The Wyoming Tribune reports:
Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon has tested positive for COVID-19, his office announced in a news release Wednesday afternoon. Gordon received his positive result earlier in the day Wednesday, and he currently has only minor symptoms and plans to continue working remotely, according to the release.
Gordon’s test result came a day after the governor’s office at the Wyoming State Capitol was closed for deep cleaning due to another office employee testing positive for COVID-19.
Gordon is also among a handful of governors to have tested positive. Governors in Nevada, Missouri, Virginia, Ohio and Oklahoma have all had COVID-19, according to local news reports from those communities.
