MAINE, USA — Speaker of the House Ryan Fecteau tested positive for COVID-19 and experiencing “minimal symptoms”, he said in a tweet Friday.

Despite his result, Fecteau said he got the Johnston & Johnson vaccine earlier this year and encourages eligible Mainers to get their COVID booster.

A spokesperson from Gov. Janet Mills’ office said the governor sends well wishes to Fecteau. Mills is feeling good after getting her COVID booster on Thursday, her office said. 

Fecteau and Mills both attended the Mary Street Apartments groundbreaking on Tuesday.
