COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCSC) - South Carolina Education Superintendent Molly Spearman said she learned Sunday she has tested positive for COVID-19.

On her Twitter account, Spearman said she had been tested on Thursday because she was a close contact to her husband and son, both of whom tested positive last week.

“Our family is in good spirits and is fortunate to have only mild symptoms,” she said. “We will continue to follow CDC and DHEC protocols for isolation and quarantine. While isolating, I plan to continue to work from home and meet virtually as so many others in the education community have done this school year.
