Catanduanes Gov. Cua, wife test positive for COVID-19
Catanduanes Governor Joseph Cua and his wife Nancy tested positive for coronavirus disease.
“My wife, Nancy, and I received the news that we tested positive for COVID-19” the governor said.
“Thankfully, we are only manifesting mild symptoms. Rest assured that the Governor’s Office continues to function given that I am able to work online as I quarantine,” he added.
Cua said that he only had “minimal engagements” this past week and was just at his office most of the time.
“As a precautionary measure, I directed all personnel at the Governor’s Office and my family to undergo an antigen test and thankfully, all tested negative,” said Cua.
Governor Cua also reminded his constituents to follow health protocols to prevent the further spread of the disease.
“We have always emphasized the need to follow all health protocols in Catanduanes, and we continue to do so, in order to manage the spread of the virus, and hopefully, to achieve a consistent zero active case in the following days,” he said.
“I urge everyone to continue following the guidelines set forth by our health experts and government officials,” he added.
