Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 05, 2020

U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill) released the following statement on his positive COVID-19 test: 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. 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, per CDC guidelines. 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.

I hope US Rep Davis does the right thing and refuses medical treatment so people who took this thing seriously and still got sick can receive the treatment instead.

At least he had a responsible message on how to handle the positive test: Home quarantine and mask/social distancing. Versus gomert who might be hanging out in his DC office spreading rona

Its a shame he had to get tested. Its the testing that's the problem. No testing, no cases!
