Senator Rand Paul tests positive for Coronavirus

Senator Rand Paul has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a series of tweets posted on his behalf. He is “feeling fine” and is now in quarantine. The tweets also say the senator was tested out of an “abundance of caution due to his extensive travel and events,” despite his lack of symptoms or knowledge of direct contact with an infected person.

Paul and the rest of his staff have been working remotely for the past 10 days, so “virtually no staff has had contact with Senator Rand Paul,” according to his office. The 57-year-old Republican Senator expects to return to work in the Senate after his quarantine period ends.

Here’s a look at his team’s full remarks following Paul’s diagnosis.

    I hope the test for him was deficit neutral. Hope he wasnt being a socialist…

      I’m sure he paid for it. Whatever his copay is… Glad that’s what you’re concerned about though.

      The government pays for his test. Just get tired of seeing someone who takes everything from his government job, complain when the government tries to help people. His definition of socialism is “when someone else gets a benefit when he doesn’t”. When he gets the benefit, that’s not socialism.

    It is great to know that there are now enough test that some who is non-symptomatic can get one.

    Rand Paul using the senate gym and pool despite knowing he might have coronavirus is a clue in the mystery of why his neighbor whipped his ass.

      How did he “know” he might have had it? If this is true it was very reckless, but I haven’t read that anywhere.

      He was waiting for his test results and went to the gym.

    And he will be re-elected if he seeks re-election when his term is up.

      There’s no intelligence test to vote.
