The Texas Tribune reports:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says he has now tested negative for COVID-19, four days after testing positive for the virus.
“I am told that my infection was brief and mild because of the vaccination I received,” Abbott said in a video he posted on Twitter Saturday afternoon. “So, I encourage others who have not yet received the vaccination to consider getting one.”
Abbott said he will continue to quarantine as recommended by doctors and that the first lady, Cecilia Abbott, continues to test negative.
