Virginia Congressman Morgan Griffith tests positive for coronavirus

ROANOKE, Va – Virginia Congressman Morgan Griffith (R) announced Tuesday he has tested positive for COVID-19.

According to Griffith, upon developing possible symptoms, he took the test over the weekend and has since been self-isolating.

“There’s no question that people should take precautions but you also can’t exist without getting out and doing a few things,” Griffith said. “So unless you have the disease, you’ve got to wear masks, try to social distance, do the best you can.”

Although he does not currently have significant symptoms, he will continue to self-isolate as he performs his duties on behalf of Virginia’s Ninth Congressional District.
