I have been informed that during the CPAC conference members of my staff and I came into contact with an individual who has since tested positive for, and is hospitalized for, COVID-19. I was with the individual for an extended period of time, and we shook hands several times.
I am not currently experiencing any symptoms, nor is any member of my staff. However, in order to prevent any potential transmission, I will remain at my home in Arizona until the conclusion of the 14-day period following my interaction with this individual.
Additionally, out of an abundance of caution, I am closing my office in Washington, D.C. for the week and my team will follow the previously approved tele-commute plan.
As we learn more about COVID-19, it is imperative to heed the advice and guidance from the CDC and medical professionals.
President Trump and Vice President Pence have assembled an incredible team and I have been in contact with the CDC and the House Office of the Attending Physician.
