South Carolina Lt. Gov. Evette Tests Positive for COVID-19

September 15, 2020

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Officials in South Carolina say Lt. Gov. Pamela Evette was diagnosed with COVID-19 on Friday, but is recovering in isolation with her family at home.

Brian Symmes, the spokesman for Gov. Henry McMaster, said Monday that Evette had a sore throat and headache and was tested for the virus. She has stayed at her family’s home near Greenville since noting the symptoms on Thursday.

Evette’s positive test prompted McMaster and his wife to get COVID-19 tests, which both came back negative Sunday. Symmes said it was the fifth negative test since the pandemic began for the governor and the third for his wife.

Symmes said two members of Evette’s staff and some of her security detail are also isolating but have not tested positive for COVID-19. Evette, 53, and the 73-year-old governor were last together on Sept. 6.
