As of Thursday, Debra Lehrmann announced on twitter that she and her husband have tested positive for the Coronavirus.
As stated by The Dallas Morning News, the couple had been experiencing fevers and body aches for the past few weeks before they decided to get tested. She is one of the first high-ranking state officials known for contracting Covid-19.
Her tweets read as, “Gregg and I have tested positive for COVID-19. We began to exhibit symptoms last week, despite diligently complying with stay-at-home rules. Thankfully, this has not interfered with #SCOTX work, as the Court is working remotely. We are grateful for your thoughts & prayer. #SBOT ”
It is believed that her son and his family may have also been infected with the Coronavirus when they visited their residence in Austin. Jonathan, the Houston lawyer, his wife Sarah, and their six-month-old son Jack have not been confirmed through testing as of yet.
