A New Jersey congressman who placed himself under self-quarantine after direct contact with a colleague who tested positive for COVID-19 does not have coronavirus.

Rep. Andy Kim (D-Marlton) announced today that he has tested negative.  He took the test after experiencing symptoms.

“I’ve seen first-hand the stress of waiting for test results, and it shows how absolutely important it is that everyone who needs a test has access,” said Kim. “My family and I are glad to know that my test was negative, but since the threat of this virus continues for all of us, I will do everything I can to fight hard for everyone impacted by this crisis in the weeks and months to come.”

Kim has been working full-time from home.

“My number one priority is giving our frontline health care and emergency workers the tools they need to combat this virus,” the 37-year-old freshman congressman said.  “Our economy can’t recover and people can’t go back to work if we’re still fighting a pandemic.“
