Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.) will quarantine after being exposed to someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus, a spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday.
“Senator Warner learned today that a close contact has tested positive for COVID-19. While Senator Warner has tested negative, out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with guidance provided by the Office of the Attending Physician, he will be working remotely during his quarantine period,” said spokesperson Rachel Cohen.
Warner is among a host of House and Senate Democrats and Republicans who have had to quarantine due to exposure to people who have tested positive for COVID-19. Dozens of lawmakers have also tested positive themselves.
Rep.-elect Luke Letlow (R-La.) died in December before being sworn in for his first term in office. His widow is running for his seat in a special election in March.
