Gov. Tim Walz, seen here wearing a mask before a press conference on advances in COVID testing in Minnesota, has tested positive for the virus.

Gov. Tim Walz has tested positive for COVID-19 along with his wife and son, as breakthrough cases have been on the rise.

The governor's announcement Tuesday comes as he has been beseeching Minnesotans to get vaccinated and take precautions around the holidays. He said he does not have symptoms, but he is in quarantine and working from home.

His son, who is in ninth grade, tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday and has sniffles, a sore throat and congestion, Walz said in a video announcement. Walz and his wife, Gwen, first tested negative for the virus Monday morning. They then took another test, which came back positive that night.
