LINCOLN, Neb. --Once again, Gov. Pete Ricketts has tested positive for COVID-19.

That announcement coming one day after Ricketts met with several officials of the state's Department of Transportation, toured the updated State Operations Center in Omaha (see photo above) and held a new conference with Omaha area reporters.

According, to a statement from Ricketts both he and his wife, First Lady Susanne Shore, have tested positive and are both experiencing what the governor calls "very minor" symptoms.

Ricketts says they are following CDC guidelines and will be isolating.

As for those who may have had close contact with the governor, the CDC recommends you quarantine, and if you have no symptoms you can be in public but should wear a tight-fitting mask, and get tested after five days.

It appears this is the third time, Ricketts has tested positive.
