LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist II says he's tested positive for COVID-19 but is showing no symptoms while he quarantines with his family.

Gilchrist said on Twitter that he tested positive Sunday morning after his 2-year-old daughter, Ruby, began experiencing a runny nose and a mild fever — symptoms that are consistent with the coronavirus.

He says his daughter and everyone else in his family was then tested for COVID-19. Gilchrist says he and his family are quarantining.

Gilchrist, a Democrat who's second in command to Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, says he and his wife are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and have also each received a booster shot.
