Pennsylvania Congressman Tests Positive For COVID-19
A Pennsylvania congressman has announced that he is postponing public events after testing positive for the coronavirus.
Rep. Dan Meuser, R-Pa., said he is following guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and working from home in quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19.
“I am thankful to God that my grown children were not at home and that my wife Shelley has tested negative," said the congressman, who represents a portion of east-central Pennsylvania, in a statement.
Meuser said because of the quarantine he will not be voting on the bill regarding postal services but would have voted against the measure, saying calls to direct $25 billion to the postal service “are not reflective of the data or the reality of the situation."
