Uttarakhand governor Baby Rani Maurya has tested positive for COVID-19.
“My corona report has come out positive. I am asymptomatic and have no problems. I have isolated myself under the supervision of doctors. I request everyone who came in contact with me over the last few days to get themselves tested,” Maurya said in a tweet.
The Uttarakhand governor had returned from Agra on Friday after a week-long vacation, a statement issued from the Raj Bhawan said.
As Saturday and Sunday were holidays and the governor’s residential quarters and the Raj bhawan secretariat are quite distant from each other, she did not come in contact with any official or employee, it said.
Hence, the governor’s secretariat will function normally.
Uttarakhand reported 466 fresh COVID-19 cases on Sunday, taking the state’s pandemic tally to 71,256.
