SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – Governor Henry McMaster and his wife have tested positive for the coronavirus.

According to his office, McMaster was notified of his positive test result late Monday evening.

“Peggy and I urge everyone to be extra careful during the Christmas holiday season,” said Gov. Henry McMaster. “This virus spreads very easily.”
