After coming into contact with positive coronavirus patient, Rep. Steve Scalise self-quarantines

Republican Congressman Steve Scalise announced late Wednesday he will self-quarantine after coming into contact with a colleague who tested positive for the coronavirus.

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, the first member of Congress to do so. Scalise said in a social media post that he had an extended meeting with Diaz-Balart last week and decided to self-quarantine "out of an abundance of caution."

"Fortunately, I am not experiencing any symptoms, and will continue working remotely on Congress' Coronavirus response," Scalise said in his statement.
