Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar says he is taking extreme precautions and self-quarantining after he says he had “contact with an individual who has since tested positive for, and is hospitalized, for COVID-19,” or coronavirus. Gosar says he was with the person at the CPAC conference recently and spent an “extended period of time” with the person and “we shook hands several times.” Gosar released a statement Sunday, says he isn’t experiencing any symptoms, but will remain at his home in Arizona during the 14-day period. He says his staff is also not experiencing any symptoms. Gosar says he is closing his office in Washington, DC for the week. He says he has been in contact with the CDC and the House Office of the attending physician. The congressman echoes warnings by health officials to wash your hands regularly, cover your mouth if you cough or sneeze and if you are sick, stay home.
