Rep. Mikie Sherrill announced tonight that her husband has tested positive for COVID-19 and that after developing symptoms of her own –and in consultation with her physician – she has scheduled a test.

“My work on behalf of our district, the fight to protect and provide our doctors, nurses, and first responders with critical personal protective equipment, and my commitment to deliver relief for our workers and small businesses remains my top priority,” Sherrill said.

The freshman congresswoman used the news of her own family to urge her constituents to follow all recommended precautions.

“I cannot stress enough how important it is that we all follow the recommendations of the CDC and the ‘stay at home’ order that is in place,” Sherrill said.  “The road ahead for New Jersey is going to be a hard one, so now more than ever, we must take care of each other and work together so that we can end this crisis.”
