The next day, Judge Keough received notice that the COVID-19 test was positive.
According to his office, he has been asymptomatic since before the diagnosis and has not developed any symptoms.
Anyone Keough had come in contact with on Monday and Tuesday has been notified. The judge started his 10-day isolation.
The affidavit stated that Keough didn’t have his normal mental or physical faculties while operating his motor vehicle due to his ingestion of zolpidem, also known as Ambien.
