The tests came as a precaution after Husted attended Tuesday's presidential debate in Cleveland and following news that President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19.
DeWine and Husted each confirmed that they had received tests since Tuesday’s debate in Cleveland and would announce their results as soon as they became available.
Husted said he never came within 50 feet of the president or members of his immediate family during the event.
President Trump was moved to Walter Reed Medical Center Friday evening, nearly 18 hours after announcing on Twitter that he and his wife tested positive for coronavirus.
Two other Ohio lawmakers, U.S. Sen. Rob Portman and U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, also tested negative for COVID-19 on Friday after recent interactions with the president.
