Indiana health commissioner tests positive for COVID-19
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana’s health commissioner has tested positive for COVID-19, the second time she has been infected.
The state health department announced Wednesday that Dr. Kristina Box was isolating at home after getting the results of a rapid test she took on Tuesday.
Box sought the test after experiencing symptoms including muscle aches, chills, coughing and a sore throat.
Box has been Gov. Eric Holcomb’s top adviser throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
She previously had a mild coronavirus infection in October 2020 before vaccinations were available.
The department says Box is fully vaccinated and received a booster dose in November.
