Washington Gov. Jay Inslee tests positive for COVID-19 for the third time



(The Center Square) – Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a news release statement put out by his office.

According to the statement, he tested positive Thursday morning after he was previously exposed to someone who had COVID-19. For now, he is working, but holding meetings virtually.

“COVID remains with us and vaccination remains as important as ever,” Inslee said in the statement. “We are so appreciative that we have this vaccine that has the ability to keep you out of the hospital or worse. I’m glad I received it and encourage others to take advantage.”

This is the third time Inslee has tested positive for COVID-19, the first in May 2022 and again this February.
