Gov. Inslee's office issued a news release with the information Wednesday morning.

The governor and his doctor will decide if he should take Paxlovid antiviral treatments.

"Once again I am very appreciative to be vaccinated and boosted," Inslee said. "This is a scientific gift that has given us the capacity to prevent hospitalizations or worse.
