Arizona congressman tests positive for Coronavirus

Representative Raul Grijalva, an Arizona Democrat, has tested positive for coronavirus but feels fine and has gone into isolation, he said in a statement on Saturday.

Grijalva, 72, was told of the positive test by the attending physician of the capitol, he said. “I currently have no symptoms, feel fine, and hope to make a quick and speedy recovery,” he said.

Grijalva chaired a hearing this week attended by Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican who has also tested positive and who has been photographed without a mask.

Grijalva, who did not name Gohmert, expressed frustration with the reluctance of some lawmakers to wear masks, which can slow the spread of the new coronavirus.

“While I cannot blame anyone directly for this, this week has shown that there are some Members of Congress who fail to take this crisis seriously,” he said. “Numerous Republican members routinely strut around the Capitol without a mask to selfishly make a political statement at the expense of their colleagues, staff, and their families.”
