Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tests positive for COVID-19 one day after maskless Republican fundraiser


Texas Republicans who attended Monday’s fundraiser should place themselves in quarantine.

In a statement, the office of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced this evening that Abbott has tested positive for COVID-19. Abbott, who was previously vaccinated, is said to be “currently experiencing no symptoms” but is allegedly “receiving Regeneron’s monoclonal antibody treatment,” an expensive treatment that is in such short supply that doctors “approve the treatment for only those most likely to develop severe” COVID-19 symptoms.

The statement does not indicate a potential source of Abbott’s COVID-19 infection, noting only that he is tested daily and first tested positive “today.” Last night Abbott, who was not wearing a mask, attended a crowded indoor Republican fundraising meeting.
