Cruz and Gozar Self-Quarantine for Coronavirus Exposure

It's good to see prominent people being proactive when they've been exposed.

After the news that an attendee at the recent CPAC conference tested positive for the coronavirus, two members of congress have quarantined themselves based on their contact with the individual.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) released a statement about his exposure and efforts to quarantine himself:

And Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) has announced in a Twitter thread that he is taking precautions as well:

(Naturally, left-wing trolls are going after both of them, but I digress…)

It’s worth stressing that neither Cruz nor Gosar have exhibited symptoms, and doctors have assured them that the chances of either of them getting the virus is slim.

As the virus has spread to over 500 cases in 25 states, it’s good to see prominent people being proactive when they’ve been exposed.

Let’s keep praying for healing for those who have it, protection for those who have been exposed, and courage and strength for those on the front lines of our public health. And let’s keep ourselves safe by washing hands and not panicking!
