A senior member of Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker has tested positive for Covid-19, prompting a temporary shutdown of his office, the governor said in a statement Monday.
"The asymptomatic staff member tested positive late last week and was in close contact with the governor and other staff members," the statement said.
Approximately 20 employees still going into the James R. Thompson Center will now work from home, the statement said.
The governor and other staff members tested negative.
