TEXAS, USA — Texas Lieutenant Gov. Dan Patrick is in quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19 last week, according to his campaign.

Patrick has already been retested and his results are now negative, but he will remain in isolation until the end of the week. 

“His symptoms were mild and no one else in the household was infected. He continues working from home and will return to a public schedule by the end of the week,” said Allen Blakemore, Patrick Campaign Senior Advisor.

Both Patrick's office and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's office confirmed that Patrick was not around Abbott last week. 

It is unknown if Patrick is vaccinated.  

Patrick is just one of many Texas officials who have been recently diagnosed with COVID-19.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Fort Bend County Judge KP George tested positive for the virus in December. Both were fully vaccinated.
