Rep. David Schweikert disclosed Sunday that one of his staff members in Washington has tested positive in Virginia for new coronavirus.
“A member of our D.C. team has been informed by the Virginia Department of Health that they tested positive for COVID-19,” Schweikert, R-Ariz., said in a written statement. “They are resting comfortably at home and following guidance from local health officials.
“Given that I have interacted with the employee who tested positive, I will be working from home until otherwise told by doctors.”
Schweikert said he is closing his office in Washington indefinitely, with staff members working from home.
