Third GOP Lawmaker to Self-Quarantine After Exposure to Coronavirus Patient at CPAC


Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) announced Monday afternoon that he will be “self quarantine” at home after sustaining contact with a person at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) who tested positive with Coronavirus.

“This afternoon, I was notified by CPAC that they discovered a photo of myself and the patient who has tested positive for coronavirus,” Collins said in a statement on Twitter. “While I feel completely healthy and I am not experiencing any symptoms, I have decided to self-quarantine at my home for the remainder of the 14-day period out of an abundance of caution.”

“I will follow the recommendations of the House Physician and my office will provide updates as appropriate,” he added.
