Montana governor tests positive for COVID – Axios

Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte (R) on Monday tested positive for COVID-19 after experiencing mild symptoms a day earlier, his office said in a statement.

The big picture: Gianforte will be isolating for 10 days as a precaution, his office added. He received his first dose of the Pfizer vaccine last Thursday.

  • Research published in February found the first shot of Pfizer’s vaccine prevented about 75% of infections, though there were some limitations to this study, Axios’ Sam Baker notes.

Of note: Gianforte is the latest U.S. political leader to test positive for the virus.

Editor’s note: This article has been updated with details of Gianforte’s vaccination and further context on this.
