Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The positive results came on Friday after a rapid coronavirus test in Carson City which is part of a regular protocol for the Democratic governor, he said in a statement.

Sisolak said he is waiting on the results of a PCR test, which stands for polymerase chain reaction. He added that he’d tested negative for the coronavirus as recently as Monday, Nov. 2, and Friday, Nov. 6.

“At this time, I am not experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Earlier this week, I felt a little fatigue, which I attributed to my demanding schedule. No other symptoms were experienced,” he said, adding that it was important to notify Nevadans “as soon as possible.”

He said Carson City Health and Human Services officials have begun a contact tracing investigation. He also said he has started to quarantine in his home.

“With my case, I want to underscore the importance of Nevadans to stay at home as much as they possibly can at this time,” Sisolak said.
