GOP governor candidate Stefanowski tests positive for COVID
HARTFORD (AP) — Bob Stefanowski, the Republican Party's endorsed candidate for governor, announced Monday he has tested positive for COVID-19.
The 60-year-old issued a statement saying he tested positive on Monday morning after learning he had been exposed to someone who was COVID-positive.
“I am vaccinated, boosted, and feeling fine so far. I will continue to follow all CDC protocols,” he said in the statement, referring to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC recommends that people who test positive stay home and isolate for from others for at least 5 days.
Stefanowski is facing a rematch against Democratic Gov. Ned Lamont, 68, who tested positive for COVID-19 last month after taking a regularly-scheduled rapid self-test.
Days later, Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewicz and then Attorney General William Tong and Treasurer Shawn Wooden, all Democrats, each tested positive as well.
