U.S. Nevada state governor in good spirits with mild symptoms after COVID-19 diagnosis
U.S. state of Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak said Monday that he remains in good spirits with mild symptoms after COVID-19 diagnosis.
"I continue to remain in good spirits with only mild head congestion. I appreciate the ongoing outpouring of support and well wishes," Sisolak said in a statement.
"I again want to thank the health officials who assisted me through this process. They serve as a strong reminder of how proud we should all be of our State's health workers," Sisolak added, noting that his focus remains on addressing the record surge the state is currently experiencing and his administration continues to work around the clock to serve Nevadans through the ongoing pandemic.
Sisolak said that he will continue to isolate and monitor symptoms.
The 66-year-old governor confirmed last Friday that he had tested positive after a routine COVID-19 testing in Carson City while not experiencing any symptoms.
Like much of the country, the western U.S. state has seen a sobering increase in new confirmed COVID-19 cases. Over 1,000 new cases have been reported in the state in 12 of the past 13 days.
