Rep. Raul Grijalva tests positive for COVID-19, is symptom-free

Source: AZ Central

Rep. Raúl Grijalva has tested positive for COVID-19 after a week in Washington, D.C., that included a hearing with Rep. Louie Gohmert, who also tested positive in recent days.

Grijalva, D-Ariz., is asymptomatic and in self-quarantine at his residence in the Washington area, his spokesman, Geoff Nolan, said. He is the first known member of Arizona's congressional delegation to have tested positive after at least several close calls.

It isn't clear how Grijalva contracted the virus, but the hearing with Gohmert, R-Texas, is a possibility.

Grijalva, who is the dean of Arizona's delegation, presided over a hearing of the House Natural Resources Committee that included Gohmert, who is a member of the committee, along with two other members of Arizona's congressional delegation. The hearing was Tuesday; Gohmert tested positive Wednesday.

3. This is not good

He is Hispanic and a bit over weight so it’s really critical to isolate him and hope for the best.
Damn it Gohmert.

6. Bet he wears a mask so didn't infect others. Whereas the Republican ass didn't wear a mask and

possibly gave it to Grijalva.

11. Are Republicans still going to be allowed to not wear masks? Will we enforce the rule?
