Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly tested positive for COVID-19 Tuesday morning.
Her office released a statement saying she is fully vaccinated and experiencing minor symptoms, noting Tuesday was the first day she experienced symptoms and is following guidance of public health officials to self-isolate as she continues to work.
Staff noted that her office has informed inaugural ball attendees, participants in the inauguration ceremony and attendees of the Executive Order signing Tuesday morning and is encouraging those who were near her to test immediately as a precautionary measure.
Normal government functions won’t be impacted, though her scheduled Wednesday State of the State Address has been postponed to Jan. 24 at 6:30 p.m. The governor’s budget will be released Thursday to the legislature as scheduled.
