Gosar self-quarantines after exposure to coronavirus


Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar said on Monday that he's feeling fine after opting to self-quarantine after he was exposed to coronavirus. He made the decision Sunday after discovering that he interacted with someone at a political conference last month who tested positive for COVID-19.

Gosar was at an event in Fountain Hills on Saturday, which was also attended by several other state lawmakers. State representatives Walt Blackman, John Kavanagh and Jay Lawrence said they felt no reason to quarantine themselves because they didn't have direct contact with Gosar.

Blackman also said that he saw no reason, at this point, for the state legislature to limit the risk of exposure by taking a break from the session. "If we get an actual outbreak here, we should address those concerns."

Gov. Doug Ducey confirmed a sixth case of coronavirus during a Monday afternoon press conference at the Capitol. He said coronavirus is his administration's top priority right now, while also acknowledging that the illness is taking a toll on the state's economy.
