WASHINGTON– Senator Mitt Romney announced he tested negative for coronavirus and will remain under quartine for the remainder of the 14-day period.
On Tuesday, Romney posted his COVID-19 test results on Twitter.
“Thankfully I’ve tested negative for COVID-19,” Romney wrote. “Nevertheless, guidance from my physician, consistent with the CDC guidelines, requires me to remain in quarantine as the test does not rule out the onset of symptoms during the 14-day period.”
