Maryland governor tests positive for COVID-19 for second time

The Maryland governor tested positive for COVID-19 for the first time back in December 2021.

MARYLAND, USA — Gov. Larry Hogan announced on Twitter Monday that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and has minimal symptoms. In the tweet, he continued to say that he is currently working from home and is currently up to date on his boosters. 

This is not the Maryland governor's first time with the virus. Hogan tested positive back in Dec. 2021. 

WUSA9 previously reported that Hogan is a two-time cancer survivor who battled the exact same form of skin cancer back in 2018. And in 2015, he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, five months into his first term. He underwent chemotherapy for nearly a year, getting a booster once a month. Over four months, he underwent 30 days of 24-hour chemotherapy. He also had three surgeries and four spinal taps before he announced he was in remission in November 2016.
