Senator Mike Lee has just announced that he’s also tested positive for the coronavirus:

According to Lee, he was tested the other day at the White House and tested negative. But after having allergy symptoms yesterday, he’s now testing positive.
Lee didn’t say whether he visited with the president the other day.
It’s a great point Lee makes about being back for the confirmation hearing of Judge Barrett. This is a huge deal and we can’t let COVID derail her nomination. I hope McConnell is working on a way, or has a way for Senators to vote from home if necessary. Otherwise they ALL need to isolate to protect themselves from the virus so they’ll be able to approve her nomination.
