WASHINGTON, DC — US Senator Cory Gardner's office issued a release Tuesday.
The release states that Senator Gardner (R-CO) will be going into self-quarantine after coming in contact with a Colorado constituent who was visiting Washington, DC and later tested positive for coronavirus.
“I was alerted today by the Tri-County Health Department that a Coloradan who visited my Washington office for a constituent meeting has tested positive for coronavirus. While I am not showing any symptoms at this time, I have made the decision to self-quarantine out of an abundance of caution with an effective date of March 11th at the recommendation of the Tri-County Health Department. The health and safety of Coloradans and Americans across the nation is my top priority, and I will continue working to make sure Congress provides the resources needed to help combat the spread of COVID-19," Senator Gardner said in the release.
