Colorado Governor Jared Polis' office announced Saturday night that the Governor and his partner, Marlon Reis, have both tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus. Both are said to be asymptomatic and isolated at home.

The Governor has been isolating since Wednesday following an exposure to a person who had tested positive for the virus. Testing at that time showed the governor was negative, however additional testing had been planned.

"Marlon and I are feeling well so far, and are in good spirits. No person or family is immune to this virus. I urge every Coloradan to practice caution, limit public interactions, wear a mask in public, stay six feet from others, and wash your hands regularly," said Governor Polis.

While recovering, the Governor is expected to be closely monitored and will remain isolated. His office says he will continue to fulfill his duties and work remotely.
