BREAKING: Ted Cruz Is Not The Only One As Second GOP Lawmaker self-Quarantined.

Senator Ted Cruz issued the following statement earlier today and put himself in self-quarantine because he shook hands with a patient with coronavirus.

I was told last night that at CPAC 10 days ago, i interacted briefly with a person that is currently symptomatic and has tested positive for COVID-19. That conversation consisted of a short talk and a handshake.

I have no symptoms, and feel good and healthy. Since the interaction was 10 days ago, the average incubation period was 5-6 days, the interaction was less than a minute, and I have no current symptoms, I was informed by the medical authorities that the chances of transmission from the other person to me were extremely low.

The doctors also advised that checking before symptoms manifest will not be successful, and my brief interaction with the patient does not meet the self-quarantine CDC requirements.

Rep. Paul Gosar spent a long time with a Conservative Political Action Conference attendee who eventually tested positive for coronavirus and is taking steps to stop the potential spread of the disease.

On Sunday night, the Arizona Republican revealed he and three of his senior staff members would be self-quarantined for fourteen days.

“I was told that my staff members came into contact with an person who has since tested COVID-19, and is hospitalized for it, during the CPAC meeting. I spent an extended period of time with the individual, and we shook hands many times,” he said in a statement.

Gosar went on to say that neither he nor his team members who were also exposed display symptoms, but he noted that he would stay in his home in Arizona until the quarantine period is over. Gosar has also said his office will be closed for the week in Washington, D.C.

The congressman became the second known Congressman to come into contact with the carrier of the virus. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz had a short exchange with the victim that lasted “less than a minute” and, with “no current symptoms,” will also self-quarantine himself.
