The governor's office confirmed Friday that both Gov. Eric Holcomb and Janet Holcomb, Indiana's first lady, recently tested negative for the coronavirus.

The Holcombs began a 14-day quarantine Tuesday after several members of their security detail were found to have COVID-19 and the state's first family was considered a close contact to the infected individuals.

According to the governor's office, the Holcombs received both an Abbott rapid COVID-19 test and a nasopharyngeal PCR test, and had negative results on each test.

They are doing well and not experiencing any symptoms, the governor's office said.

The Holcombs will not be tested again unless one of them shows signs of COVID-19 infection.

At the same time, the governor and first lady still plan to isolate themselves from others for the full, 14-day quarantine period, and will resume their normal schedules on or about Dec. 1.
