A high-ranking official just tested positive for the potentially-deadly coronavirus. President Donald Trump and millions of Americans are stunned by this news, which has marked a historic first since the pandemic began. This is a shocking development.
“Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt announced Wednesday that he’s the first governor in the United States to test positive for the coronavirus and that he is isolating at home,” reported Breitbart News based upon a story from The Associated Press.
It isn’t currently known how Gov. Stitt contracted the virus. Contrary to what the mainstream media may try to insinuate, it wasn’t at the Trump campaign rally in Oklahoma — which took place nearly a month ago. It would have had to be significantly more recent than that.
Currently, the Republican governor is in self-quarantine to let the virus run its course. He reported during a virtual press conference that he started feeling “a little achy,” which prompted him to seek medical attention. The results came back positive for COVID-19.
From the sound of it, however, Stitt is experiencing mild symptoms and expects to make a full recovery. Meanwhile, he has continued to resist calls from nanny-state liberals for him to institute a statewide mask mandate. He doesn’t believe this would be the right thing to do.
Noting that a mandate would “just open up a big can of worms,” Stitt recognized that businesses still have the authority to require masks. “A lot of businesses are requiring it, and that’s fine,” he said. “I’m just hesitant to mandate something that I think is problematic to enforce.”
