Rand Paul, U.S. Senator for Kentucky, has tested positive for COVID-19. This is the first U.S. senator to test positive for Coronavirus.
The announcement on his Twitter account issued by Sergio Gor, Paul’s Deputy Chief of Staff, reads as follows:
” He [Sen. Rand Paul] is feeling fine and is in quarantine. He is asymptomatic and was tested out of an abundance of caution due to his extensive travel and events. He was not aware of any direct contact with any infected person.
He expects to be back in the Senate after his quarantine period ends and will continue to work for the people of Kentucky at this difficult time. Ten days ago, our D.C. office began operating remotely, hence virtually no staff has had contact with Senator Rand Paul.”
