Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush has tested positive for COVID-19, her office announced Monday.

Rush is the highest-ranking state official who’s publicly announced a positive COVID-19 test.

Rush’s office said she took a test after a family member was positive and was already self-isolating before her own result came in.

The chief justice was previously working remotely and hasn’t been to the Statehouse since Sept. 1.
