Rep. Brad Schneider is the third member of Congress to test positive for the coronavirus after seeking shelter with colleagues in a secure room during the storming of the US Capitol last Wednesday.
“Unfortunately, I received a positive COVID-19 test this morning following being tested yesterday on the advice of the House Attending Physician,” Schneider (D-Il.) wrote on Twitter Tuesday.
He said he is not yet experiencing symptoms and “has remained isolated as much as possible from my wife in our house and have not experienced other close contacts since my exposure on Wednesday.”

Schneider said he is in the “care of capable physicians.”
He also expressed his anger at the lawmakers who refused to wear a mask and put others at risk.
“Those that flout public health guidance should be sanctioned and immediately removed from the House floor by the Sergeant at Arms for their reckless endangerment of their colleagues,” he posted on Twitter.
