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.”

Sen. Romney and Sen. Mike Lee decided to self-quartine on Sunday after coming in close contact with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) who tested positive for coronavirus.

 

Under current law, quarantined lawmakers are unable to vote on legislation. Lawmakers on Capitol Hill have been attempting to pass an economic relief bill for Americans in wake of COVID-19.

Sen. Mike Lee has not released his test results to the public.
