Former US Secretary of State James A. Baker III and his wife Susan Baker are at home in Texas recovering from the coronavirus, Baker spokesman John Williams confirmed Thursday, according to reports.

The couple, who tested positive earlier this week, did not require hospitalization and were quarantined at their Houston home, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Baker, 90, felt well enough on Thursday to do paperwork while Susan Baker baked pancakes, Williams told FOX 26 in Houston.

The Bakers believe they contracted the virus during a recent trip to Wyoming to see family, Williams said, according to the Chronicle.
