INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s governor and his wife have tested negative for COVID-19 after several members of his security detail were confirmed infected with the coronavirus earlier this week, his office announced Friday.

Gov. Eric Holcomb and first lady Janet Holcomb have not experienced any COVID-19 symptoms but will continue a two-week quarantine until Dec. 1, the governor’s office said in a statement.

The Holcombs underwent tests after beginning their quarantine on Tuesday.

Holcomb, 52, also tested negative for COVID-19 last month after State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box announced she and some family members were infected.
