Sen. Rick Scott of Florida said Friday he had tested positive for COVID-19 and was isolating at home with “very mild symptoms.”
He’s the second senator, along with Iowa’s Chuck Grassley, and at least the eighth member of Congress to announce a positive test this week.
Scott, 67, has been quarantining at home all week after coming into contact with someone who subsequently tested positive.
His office said he had “multiple negative rapid tests earlier in the week” but a separate test he took Tuesday came back positive Friday morning.
Scott, a Republican, said he was “feeling good” and would be working at his home in Naples.
