It has been confirmed that both Governor Mike Parson and First Lady Teresa Parson have tested positive for Covid-19. Officials say that Governor Parson is not showing any symptoms at this time and will quarantine in the Governor’s Mansion, for the next 10 days.

As for First Lady Parson, she is currently quarantining in their home in Bolivar, Mo.

The couple got tested after the First Lady started showing symptoms earlier this week. This comes as a shock to many because Governor Parson has been very vocal on being opposed to making facemask mandatory in Missouri.

Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Dr. Randall Williams said they have already begun contact tracing and it seems like only a small number of people are at risk of contracting the illness.

At this time Governor Parson’s staff is waiting for their test results and all of the Governors events have been postponed.
