Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and his wife tested positive for coronavirus a week back. Currently, he feels fine with no trace of coronavirus symptoms.
The first lady of Virginia, Pam Northam, and four state legislators tested positive with COVID-19 in 2020. Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., announced he and wife Anne Holton had tested positive in May. They also had antibodies to fight the virus.

Northam posted a photo of himself talking on his mobile as a tweet. He said that he was working with his legislators to settle the amended budget of the state. The Senate has formally backed their spendings on Friday and set up financial adjustments with the House.
Over the last few days, I have been working closely with legislators to finalize a budget that will help Virginia continue fighting #COVID19 and ensure we emerge from this pandemic stronger and more resilient––I urge the General Assembly to send it to my desk as soon as possible. pic.twitter.com/fsjzT276TV

Donald Trump held a rally last week, hours after Northam had announced he tested positive along with his wife. He also mentioned that he might have been exposed to a sick staff at his Executive Mansion.
Trump didn’t seem to appear close to any of the officials from Virginia, who was a part of the rally. Some of them addressed the rally before the President came up but were not anywhere close to 50 feet.
The Virginia Department of Health on Friday reported that there is a rise in coronavirus cases at present. The numbers currently stand as 149,687 and increased by 966 from 148,721 within 24 hours.
Virginia has seen 3,250 deaths due to coronavirus. Out of these, 3,037 are confirmed, while 213 are probable.
On Friday, the health department also asked college-goers to stop community transmission on campuses. They asked them to stay at home if they have the virus and not contact people.
