CHARLESTON, W.Va (WDTV) - Gov. Jim Justice announced he is being treated for “possible Lyme disease” after falling ill amid the WV GameChanger events on Monday in Wheeling and Blacksville.
In a release sent to 5 News, Gov. Justice says, “After the WV GameChanger events on Monday in Wheeling and Blacksville, I began feeling extremely sick. I immediately got tested for COVID-19 and was negative, but I am still having symptoms and nowhere near 100%. As of now, I am being treated for possible Lyme disease.”
Justice is postponing his regularly scheduled COVID-19 briefings this week, and says he will hold one as soon as possible after the holiday.
