"I got tested yesterday for COVID-19 and [the] results came back positive," Stitt said. "I feel fine. ... I am now isolated away from my family. I will be working from home until it is safe to get back to normal life."

Stitt said he would not have been contagious before last Saturday and was having all his personal contacts traced.

"I would not have been contagious since before Saturday I did not have the traditional symptoms of COVID. ... I feel fine, slightly achy," Stitt said.
