Maryland Gov. Hogan Tests Positive for COVID

(Monday, December 20, 2021) – Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced this morning he has tested positive for COVID.  Hogan says he received a positive rapid test today as part of his regular testing routine and added he is feeling fine at the moment.

Hogan is a cancer survivor and is fully vaccinated.  He has also received his booster.  In a tweet, the republican governor urged all residents “to get vaccinated or get your booster as soon as possible.”

Governor Hogan’s positive test comes as states around the country are seeing a dramatic rise in infections as the omicron variant takes hold.  Maryland has not been able to provide an update on its cases because of a computer hack two weeks ago.
