AUSTIN – Texas’ own Matthew McConaughey took to Twitter last Saturday to wish Gov. Greg Abbott a speedy recovery after he was tested positive for COVID-19.
Abbott, who is fully vaccinated, said his infection was “brief and mild” and has continued to quarantine based on doctors’ recommendations.
“Glad you are now testing negative for COVID, Gov. Abbott,” he wrote on Twitter. “Health to you, Cecilia, Texas, and beyond.”
