Governor Ralph Northam and his wife Pamela Northam both tested positive for COVID-19 at the end of September. At the time, the Governor said that he was asymptomatic and that his wife was experiencing mild symptoms.

A week later the Governor was still experiencing no symptoms. “A week after our positive test results, I have no symptoms and feel fine,” said Northam on Friday. “[The first lady] has mild symptoms, but is feeling better each day. We are grateful for your ongoing prayers and support.”

However, Northam said in his update on Monday that he did begin to experience mild cold symptoms and lost his sense of smell over the weekend. He says that otherwise they are doing well and are in good spirits.
