because, you know, COVID-19. Apparently the senator tested negative last night but is aware that he was exposed to someone who is positive. So he is in quarantine for the remainder of the month.
Johnson was exposed to someone infected on Monday and tested negative on Wednesday. He will stay isolated until Sept. 29 to ensure he hasn’t been infected.
“Sen. Johnson is experiencing no symptoms, but was tested late Wednesday because he was scheduled to travel with the President today,” spokesman Ben Voelkel said in an email.
Johnson was scheduled to travel with President Donald Trump to Mosinee on Thursday for a rally, which the Oshkosh Republican won’t attend after the exposure.
For those of you visiting Mosinee tonight, wear your mask!
