Two More Members of Congress Announced Positive Coronavirus Diagnoses

Washington (CNN)At least two members of the US House of Representatives announced Monday that they tested positive for Covid-19 and another member announced he was isolating after possibly being exposed, a sign of the looming threat of coronavirus on Capitol Hill.

Democratic Rep. Cheri Bustos of Illinois and Republican Rep. Tim Walberg of Michigan each separately announced positive diagnoses and Democratic Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin said publicly he was isolating after a possible exposure to the virus. The announcements mark the latest of more than two dozen lawmakers who have tested positive for Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic.
Bustos, the outgoing chairwoman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, tweeted about her situation Monday, writing that she was “experiencing mild symptoms, but still feel well.” She is isolating at her home in Illinois.
