Cassidy tests positive for COVID-19
Upon being notified Wednesday night that he’d been exposed to an individual with coronavirus, U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-Louisiana) was tested Thursday for COVID-19. That test was positive.
Cassidy contacted his physician and is adhering to all CDC recommendations, including quarantining for 14 days and notifying those with whom he may have come into contact.
A spokesman said Cassidy has mild symptoms. He is at home in Baton Rouge.
“I am strictly following the direction of our medical experts and strongly encourage others to do the same,” said Cassidy.
