Ron Johnson has contracted the virus, his office announced Saturday morning.
According to a brief statement, the Wisconsin Republican tested positive on Friday, the same day as announcements came that President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, several members of the White House staff, and multiple other prominent Republican Senators were all infected.
Johnson is currently asymptomatic and “feel(ing) healthy,” his office explained. He is expected to remain isolated until his doctor gives him clearance to return.
The senator plans to keep working through his isolation, however. Johnson’s statement they were already working remotely, and they will now go all virtual “for the immediate future.”
