Illinois Rep. Rodney Davis testifies to the House Rules Committee on May 14 in Washington, DC. Chip Somodevilla/Getty ImagesRepublican Rep. Rodney Davis of Illinois announced today he has tested positive for Covid-19.“This morning, I tested positive for COVID-19. Since the beginning of this pandemic, I have taken my temperature twice daily because serving in Congress means I interact with many people, and it’s my duty to protect the health of those I serve. This morning, my temperature clocked in at 99 degrees Fahrenheit, which is higher than normal for me," he said in a statement.
“Because of the high temperature, my wife and I received a test this morning. While my test came back positive, my wife’s test came back negative. My staff who I’ve worked with in-person this week have received negative tests as well. Other than a higher-than-normal temperature, I am showing no symptoms at this time and feel fine," Davis said.
He added, “Having consulted with the Office of the Attending Physician (OAP) of Congress and local county health officials, our office is contacting constituents I have met with in-person within the previous 48 hours, perCDC guidelines.”His statement continued, “My staff and I take COVID-19 very seriously. My wife is a nurse and a cancer survivor, which puts her in an at-risk category like so many Americans. My office and I have always followed and will continue to follow CDC guidelines, use social distancing, and wear masks or face coverings when social distancing cannot be maintained.
I will postpone public events our office has planned for the coming days until I receive a negative test. I will continue to serve my constituents virtually from home while I quarantine. Our district offices throughout central and southwestern Illinois remain open for constituents as well. During these challenging times, protecting the public health is my highest priority. If you’re out in public, use social distancing, and when you can’t social distance, please wear a mask. All of us must do our part. That’s what it will take to get through this pandemic.”
CNN's Manu Raju noted that Davis has been wearing a mask on the Hill. Read more: CNN Breaking News »

Trump nursing home plan limits supply of free COVID-19 testsThe Trump administration’s plan to provide every nursing home with a fast COVID-19 testing machine comes with an asterisk: The government won’t supply enough test kits to check staff and residents beyond an initial couple of rounds. So? Which is literally another huge waste of tax payers money. realDonaldTrump is the most incompetent man in America right now.
Nursing home leaders hope new antibody trials will put them on 'offense' against COVID-19After spending the past six months trying desperately to keep the deadly virus from invading their facilities, Dr. Mark Gloth says he believes he is finally getting a chance to strike back. There's GOOD NEWS today... While a cure for Covid_19 may be a year or more away, a cure for Trump is only a short 91 days away... & the best news is that it's in YOUR hands now !! VoteBlue, that's all you have to do. JoeBiden will heal America. 🇺🇸 You know, more and more people all around me are finding out how the hospitals are paid $10-30k by the feds for each 'COVID' death, giving them obvious incentive to up the numbers to make more money. I no longer believe the death stats the news reports. It's a fabrication.
Health care workers share their experiences as COVID-19 deaths surpass 156,000'When you're doing it patient after patient after patient all day long, it's mentally stressing and it's physically stressing. We don't even have a vaccine for this thing and there's going to a lot more people dying.' BSDNC is the Left Wing Vomit on the bathroom floor of journalism. It’s a good thing the numbers are going down. Fake news
