Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and First Lady Maria Lee are quarantining at home “out of an abundance of caution” after a member of the governor’s security detail tested positive Wednesday for COVID-19.
The governor has tested negative for COVID-19 and said he is feeling well. The first lady was to be tested Wednesday afternoon. No staff is believed to be positive. The security team member has not been identified, and the source of the infection is not known.
Lee told reporters on a news briefing call Wednesday afternoon the protocols for contact tracing will be followed, as with any other case.
