WV governor being treated for “possible” Lyme disease
West Virginia Governor Jim Justice has announced he is being treated for possible Lyme disease.
In a statement released by his office, Gov. Justice said he “began feeling extremely sick” after attending various events on Monday.
He was immediately tested for COVID-19, which was negative. He said his symptoms continued and he is now being treated for possible Lyme disease.
“With this weekend being Memorial Day weekend, I will be postponing my regularly scheduled COVID-19 briefings this week and will hold one as soon as possible after the holiday,” he said.
No word on what kind of Lyme testing he had, nor on what kind of treatment he’s getting.
