Republican U.S. Rep. Dan Meuser, who represents part of the Coal Region, says he tested positive for the coronavirus - The Morning Call

U.S. Rep. Dan Meuser said Saturday that he has tested positive for COVID-19, making him the second federal lawmaker from Pennsylvania to announce a positive diagnosis amid the coronavirus pandemic.

A spokesman for Meuser, a Republican whose 9th District includes Carbon and Schuylkill counties, said Saturday afternoon that the lawmaker was “feeling fine,” and that he has contacted everyone he interacted with during the last 72 hours.

“I have been following all [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] health and safety guidelines, and will be taking all necessary actions, including postponing upcoming public events and working from home in quarantine until I receive a negative test result,” Meuser said in a statement. “I am thankful to God that my grown children were not at home and that my wife Shelley has tested negative.”

The test result means Meuser was not on Capitol Hill Saturday, where House lawmakers were voting on legislation to boost funding for the U.S. Postal Service and prohibit operational changes that could delay mail service, affecting ballots in the presidential election.
I wonder if he ever wore a face mask?
best wishes for a full recovery.
