Senator Rand Paul Tests Positive for COVID-19

Senator continues working, but from self-quarantine.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has tested positive for the coronavirus and will remain in quarantine, according to an announcement made on Twitter.

The senator is continuing to work. Members of his Washington, D.C., office have been working remotely for the past ten days.

On Sunday he tweeted that he is feeling fine. He is asymptomatic and was tested out of an abundance of caution due to his extensive travel and events. He was not aware of any direct contact with any infected person.

He expects to be back in the Senate after his quarantine period ends and will continue to work for the people of Kentucky at this difficult time, according to his tweet.

Senator Paul is the first member of the Senate known to have been infected with the virus. Representatives Mario Diaz-Ballart of Florida and Ben McAdams of Utah have also tested positive, as have two congressional staffers. Others have self-quarantined after they had possible exposure to the virus.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Senator Rand Paul to have a speedy recovery as he endures the quarantine.
  • For the safety and protection of all members of Congress and the staff members who work with them.
