Missouri Gov. Mike Parson and his wife, Teresa Parson, have both tested positive for COVID-19, his office announced Wednesday.

Mike Parson, 65, will face Democrat Nicole Galloway in the November election. He has postponed campaign events due to the diagnosis.

Teresa Parson was experiencing mild symptoms of the virus on Wednesday and took a rapid test that came out positive. Mike Parson also took a rapid test, revealing a positive diagnosis. 

“I did get up with a few cold-like symptoms and decided maybe because we are among the public so much, I should be tested,” Teresa Parson said in a Twitter video. She said she was feeling fine and was in quarantine.

Mike Parson is the second governor to test positive for the virus. Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt also tested positive for the virus in July but recovered weeks later.

Mike Parson has asked Missouri residents to wear masks but steadfastly refused to implement a statewide mask mandate. At the beginning of the outbreak in March, he was reluctant to issue a statewide stay-at-home order but later reversed course on the issue.
