A member of Gov. Kevin Stitt’s cabinet and two state lawmakers have tested positive for COVID-19.

Secretary of Digital Transformation and Administration David Ostrowe was tested after a prolonged, high fever. The governor’s office says he is following quarantine procedures at home and has not been in contact with Stitt in more than two weeks.

In the legislature, Rep. Jason Lowe and Sen. Paul Rosino said they have tested positive for COVID-19 but are doing well and recovering.

Lowe urged people to follow social distancing protocols to help stop the spread of the illness.

"It is of vital importance that we all stay home to help flatten the curve swiftly and effectively," Lowe said in a statement.

One Senate and two House staffers have also tested positive.
