“This evening, Governor Police and First Gentleman (Marlon) Reese found out they had tested positive for COVID-19,” the statement said.
The two are fine and continue to be alone in their home, according to a statement.
“Marlon and I have been well and in good spirits so far. No individual or family is immune from this virus. Wash your hands regularly, “said Tariq al-Hashimi, the party’s secretary general.
The governor will continue to monitor closely and “continue to perform his duties and responsibilities and work remotely,” the statement said.
The governors of Nevada, Virginia and Missouri have tested positive for the virus in recent months, highlighting the level of virus spread across the country.
“Our state is large and some areas are safer than others. Different places have different security protocols,” police told Post Live.
Police spoke with recently elected President Joe Biden and the National Governors Association Executive Committee about the growing coronavirus epidemic. Speaking to Post Live after the meeting, police said, “A lot of common things have been shared about where we are as a country,” but “we can’t wait too long on these things.”
