By Andrew Oxford | Arizona Republic

An Arizona legislator is showing “early signs of improvement” after he was hospitalized over the weekend with complications related to COVID-19, his wife said Tuesday.

Rep. Lorenzo Sierra, D-Avondale, remains in critical but stable condition on a ventilator, Rhonda Cagle wrote on social media.

Cagle also said she had signed off on an experimental treatment.

Sierra was hospitalized Sunday while he visited family in Washington, D.C., with Cagle.

The lawmaker said he had tested negative for COVID-19 before traveling, but that they both began exhibiting symptoms of the virus in late September while visiting the East Coast.
