Two Congressmen who shook hands and interacted with a man at the CPAC convention who has since been diagnosed with coronavirus have self-quarantined themselves. Both Congressmen have also shaken hands with Donald Trump. The New York Times writes:
Representative Matt Gaetz of Florida, who attended a party with Mr. Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate over the weekend and traveled with him from Florida to the capital on Monday afternoon, announced an hour after getting off the president’s plane that he would remain out of contact with other people for two weeks.
Representative Doug Collins, Republican of Georgia, who toured the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta with Mr. Trump on Friday, likewise went into isolation on Monday. “While I am not experiencing any symptoms, I have decided to self-quarantine out of an abundance of caution,” he wrote on his Twitter feed.“
Gaetz was criticized for mocking the coronavirus response when he wore a gas mask on the floor of the U.S. House.
