Rep. Josh Gottheimer has tested negative for COVID-19, ending a self-quarantine he began after being exposed to coronavirus.
Gottheimer began his self-quarantine after sharing a podium with Michael Maron, the president and CEO of Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck. Maron has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
The two-term Democrat has said he has shown no symptoms.
Bergen County Executive James Tedesco is also under self-imposed fourteen-day quarantine after attending the same event as Gottheimer and Maron.
Another New Jersey congressman, Andy Kim (D-Marlton), ended his own self-quarantine this week after testing negative for the virus. He had been exposed to another Member of Congress who tested positive and had flu-like symptoms.
