GOP WI Sen Johnson tests positive. Statement:
Senator Johnson was exposed to someone who tested positive for covid-19 on Sept. 14.
He stayed in quarantine for 14 days without developing symptoms and tested negative twice during that time. He returned to Washington on Sept. 29 and shortly after was exposed to an individual who has since tested positive.
After learning of this exposure, the senator was tested yesterday afternoon. This test came back positive. Senator Johnson feels healthy and is not experiencing symptoms. He will remain isolated until given the all-clear by his doctor.
Most staff in the senator’s Washington office have been working remotely. The office will go all-virtual for the immediate future.
