Michigan Republican Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-7) has tested positive for COVID-19.
Walberg – who was recently re-elected – took to Facebook to inform the public he tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday.
He said it’s been more than a week since he attended any public events. He and his office are working with health officials to contact people he had contact with before he started self-isolating.
Walberg said his symptoms are mild and he intends to keep working from home while he recovers.
He also encouraged everyone to remain vigilant and adhere to public health guidelines to combat the coronavirus.
Republican Congressman Bill Huizenga also tested positive last month.
