Gottheimer self-quarantines after exposure to coronavirus

Congressman displaying no symptoms

By David Wildstein, March 24 2020 6:03 pm

Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-Wyckoff) has been under self-quarantine after being exposed to novel coronavirus nine days ago, his spokesman told the New Jersey Globe.

He is awaiting the results of  COVID-19 test.

The two-term congressman is experiencing no symptoms, but decided to self-quarantine in an “abundance of caution and best practices,” his spokesman said.

Gottheimer and Bergen County Executive James Tedesco were both at the same press conference with Holy Name Medical Center president Michael Maron.

Maron has tested positive for COVID-19.

Tedesco has also been under self-quarantine.

Rep. Andy Kim (D-Marlton) announced today that he tested negative for coronavirus.  He had been under self-quarantine after exposure to another congressman who tested positive.
