Indiana governor ends quarantine after COVID-19
exposure 1

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Indiana’s governor ended a quarantine on Tuesday that started two weeks ago after several members of his security detail were confirmed infected with the coronavirus, his spokeswoman said.

Gov. Eric Holcomb and first lady Janet Holcomb tested negative for COVID-19 on Nov. 20 and the governor has not experienced any symptoms of the respiratory disease, according to Rachel Hoffmeyer, the governor’s press secretary.

The governor has resumed his normal schedule, Hoffmeyer said.

Holcomb, 52, also tested negative for COVID-19 in mid-October after State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box announced she and some family members were infected.

Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett and his wife are scheduled to remain in quarantine until Friday after having close contact with an infected person. They both have tested negative for COVID-19, the mayor’s office said Saturday.
