Congresswoman Votes on the House Floor Six Days After Announcing Coronavirus Infection

Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., said she intends to vote on the House floor on Sunday, despite announcing six days ago that she tested positive for coronavirus, as Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., hunts for every vote she can get in her push to reprise her role as House speaker.

Moore announced on Dec. 28 that she had tested positive for coronavirus, though she did not specify which day she tested positive. She has not yet said if she has tested negative for COVID-19. Fox News’ inquiry to Moore’s office was not immediately returned.

“Thank you all for the well wishes,” Moore wrote on Twitter on Sunday. “I am feeling good! My quarantine is over and I am medically cleared to travel and work on behalf of Wisconsin’s Fourth Congressional District.”

Meanwhile, three other members of Congress will be allowed to vote on Sunday via “special arrangements” because they are still in their quarantine windows despite testing negative for the virus, Politico’s Heather Caygle and Melanie Zanona reported.
