This morning I woke up with symptoms similar to COVID and out of an abundance of caution I took two rapid antigen tests, which came back negative, and then followed up with a PCR test, which confirmed the negative.— Chris Sununu (@GovChrisSununu) September 1, 2021

Gov. Chris Sununu’s office says the governor is “not feeling well” and he will get tested for COVID-19.
Wednesday's Executive Council meeting is postponed, according to the announcement.
The statement says Sununu is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, but began isolating this morning.
Sununu was traveling earlier in the week with inventor Dean Kamen, as well as state officials on a trip to Kentucky to learn how that state is handling a COVID-19 surge there.
The group returned home on Kamen’s private jet Monday night.
