Gov. John Carney announced May 16 that he tested positive for COVID-19 through an at-home antigen test.

Carney took the COVID-19 test after experiencing mild symptoms, officials said. He is vaccinated and double boosted and is currently isolating per the Centers for Disease Control guidelines.

“I am feeling well and will continue to work remotely, but unfortunately will have to miss a few in-person events,” he said in a press release. “I will continue to follow the CDC guidelines following my positive result.”

CDC guidelines recommend isolating at home for five days after testing positive for COVID-19, regardless of one’s vaccination status.
