Florida Congressman Tests Positive

Via The Washington Examiner:

Rep. Neal Dunn is the sixth member of Congress to test positive for coronavirus. 

Dunn, a Florida Republican, found out he tested positive for the COVID-19 virus after a visit to the emergency room on Monday evening. The congressman felt some of the symptoms of the virus, prompting the hospital visit. 

“Congressman Dunn is feeling great and currently quarantining himself at home per CDC guidelines and working on Phase IV of the Administration’s response to this pandemic,” his office said in a statement to WCTV on Thursday. “He expects a full recovery soon. He reminds everyone that it is important for us all to stay home unless they are an ‘essential employee’ or need essential items from stores or pharmacies.”

His team continued, “Congressman Dunn emphasizes that we must continue to do what we can to target vulnerable places and populations to slow the spread of this disease. He is keenly interested in new and faster testing to help everyone understand their risks. While America continues to suffer from some sad areas of ‘hot spots,’ our current actions are mitigating the worst of this disease and America will rebound in the near future.”
