Mille Porsild, the 2020 Iditarod Rookie of the Year, says that she's recovered from coronavirus.

The musher wrote on Facebook last week that the day marked the first time in more than seven weeks that it had been at least 72 hours since she'd recovered from a fever.

She posted the news to her social media account in a longer statement, saying in part:

Porsild, wearing bib no. 32, took 15th place overall in this year's race, crossing under the Burled Arch 10 days, one hour and 43 minutes after starting the 1,000-mile trek from the Valley.
