Carbajal Issues Statement After Exposure to Individual with COVID-19

Washington, DC, October 5, 2020 Washington, DC – Congressman Carbajal issued the following statement after becoming exposed to an individual who tested positive for COVID-19: “No one is immune to contracting coronavirus and Congress is certainly no exception. Despite taking every precaution — including wearing a mask, social distancing, and hand-washing — I have learned I was exposed to an individual who tested positive for COVID-19. I immediately got tested, which thankfully came back negative and I will continue to consult with my doctor.  “Given that symptoms may still appear up to two weeks after exposure to the virus, the House Attending Physician directed me to stay in Washington, DC and quarantine for 14 days to self-monitor for symptoms. Accordingly, I will be carrying out my responsibilities virtually in order to protect the health and safety of others.” MIL OSI USA News
