Rep. Joe Cunningham has tested positive for Covid-19.
Cunningham, a Democrat from South Carolina, said he's been in self-quarantine since March 19, when he "received word from the Attending Physician of the U.S. Congress that I had been in contact with a member of Congress who had since tested positive for COVID-19."
"While I otherwise feel fine, since March 17th I have been unable to smell or taste, which I learned this week is a potential symptom of COVID-19. I have been in contact with my doctor since I entered self-quarantine," he said in a statement.
Several other members of Congress have previously tested positive for coronavirus, including Sen. Rand Paul. Cunningham did not say which lawmaker he had contact with.
