Maryland governor tests positive for coronavirus, feels fine

ANNAPOLIS, Md.—The governor of Maryland announced Monday that he has tested positive for COVID-19, but is currently feeling well.

Governor Larry Hogan wrote on Twitter that he received a positive rapid test on Monday morning as part of his regular testing routine. Hogan, a cancer survivor, said she had been vaccinated, and given a booster shot.

Over the summer, members of Hogan’s staff tested positive, but Hogan and Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford tested negative.

“As soon as the Omicron version goes into effect, I’d like to urge you to get vaccinated or get your booster shot as soon as possible,” Hogan posted.

Hogan said on “Fox News Sunday” on Sunday that he does not plan to issue any new lockdown orders, despite his concerns about COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations. The number of hospitalizations in Maryland has increased by about 150 percent in the past two weeks, he said. The Republican governor said the state was trying to provide more support for hospitals and pushing more residents to get vaccinated amid the fast-spreading omicron version of COVID-19.

“We anticipate over the next three to five weeks probably the worst surge we have seen in our hospitals during the entire crisis, but we do not expect this to last long. We’re expecting it to start to subside fairly quickly, but we’re facing a tough time,” Hogan said.

The state health department reported on Sunday that 1,345 people had been hospitalised, more than double those admitted a month earlier. But the state has not reported data on COVID-19 cases or deaths since early December, when a cyberattack hit its health department.
