Fully vaccinated *and boosted* West Virginia Governor Jim Justice (R) said he is “extremely unwell” after testing positive for Covid on Tuesday.
“While I was surprised that my test results came back positive, I’m thankful to the Lord above that I’ve been vaccinated, I’ve been boosted, and that I have an incredible support system, especially my loving family,” Justice said in a press release. “That being said, I feel extremely unwell at this point, and I have no choice but to postpone my State of the State address to the Legislature.”
The 70-year-old governor said he woke up with a cough and later developed a fever and headache.
Governor Justice received a round of monoclonal antibody treatment on Tuesday.

“For this to happen just one night before the State of the State — knowing I won’t be able to be there — saddens me. There are so many great things happening in West Virginia right now,” said Justice. “So I apologize in every way for not being able to join you tomorrow night, and I especially apologize to all our invited guests who are having to change their plans. I’ll be back in front of you in-person before you know it.”
