Gottheimer tests negative for COVID-19

By David Wildstein, March 28 2020 7:52 pm

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.
