Georgia’s Secretary of State Quarantined After Wife Diagnosed with Coronavirus

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R), whose state is preparing for a hand tally of the presidential race, will voluntarily isolate himself after his wife tested positive for coronavirus.

Tricia Raffensperger tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs told The Associated Press. The secretary, who is the state’s top election official, skipped an afternoon press conference to get tested and plans to self-quarantine as a precaution even if his test is negative.

If the test comes back positive, Fuchs told the AP that she and other members of Raffensperger’s staff who have been in close contact with him will get tested and quarantine.
