Gov. Mike DeWine and Ohio First Lady Fran DeWine have tested negative for COVID-19 after being exposed to two staff members who tested positive for the virus.

The DeWines are not showing any symptoms. Both are fully-vaccinated and have received boosters, according to DeWine’s office.

The DeWines will not participate in any events scheduled through Sunday and will continue to be tested for COVID-19 daily.

Last August Gov. DeWine tested positive for COVID during a required screening to meet with then President Donald Trump. A second test he took later the same day came back as negative.
