CINCINNATI (WXIX) – Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has COVID-19, according to the governor’s office.
DeWine was diagnosed Friday by her personal physician. He has experienced mild symptoms such as runny nose, headache, body aches and sore throats, a spokesman said.
This is the first time DeWine has received COVID-19 despite having been exposed twice before, first in November 2021, then in December of the same year.
In August 2021, the governor tested positive, but it later turned out that the result was a false positive.
The governor received a monoclonal antibody treatment early Friday night. The treatment infuses a patient with laboratory-produced antibodies that mimic the immune system’s defenses against the virus.
He is currently in quarantine according to the Centers for Disease Control COVID-19 diagnostic protocol.
First Lady Fran DeWine has tested negative and is not experiencing any symptoms, the spokeswoman said.
Both the governor and the first lady are fully vaccinated and boosted.
