Things are not looking good.
Recently, a Republican congressman tested positive for coronavirus, and it has been released that a second congressman, Rep. Ben McAdams, has also been tested positive as well. McAdams announced that he self-quarantined himself when he first developed symptoms.
He said, “On Saturday evening, after returning from Washington, D.C., I developed mild cold-like symptoms. In consultation with my doctor on Sunday, I immediately isolated myself in my home. I have been conducting all meetings by telephone. My symptoms got worse and I developed a fever, dry cough and labored breathing and I remained self-quarantined.”
“On Tuesday, my doctor instructed my to get tested for COVID-19 and following his referral, I went to the local testing clinic for the test. Today I learned that I tested positive. I am still working for Utahns and pursuing efforts to get Utahns the resources they need as I continue doing my job from home until I know it is safe to end my self-quarantine. I’m doing my part as all Americans are doing to contain the spread of the virus and mitigate the coronavirus outbreak.”
McAdams has said that he is feeling better and that it is imperative to take the virus seriously and to follow the CDC guidelines. Read the full story here.
