U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, R-Tennessee, announced Sunday that he tested positive for COVID-19 after contact with another member of Congress he shares a residence with in Washington.
"I have been in quarantine since Wednesday night, which is when I learned the individual had tested positive, and [am] following CDC guidance," Fleischmann said in a statement. "I will continue to work for my constituents while self-isolating. I currently feel okay and remain in contact with the Attending Physician. I again, want to urge all Americans to continue to wear masks, practice proper hygiene, and follow CDC guidance as we work to combat COVID-19."
