U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner came into contact with a constituent who has since tested positive for coronavirus and is going to a Denver council meeting to see Candi CdeBaca doing the responsible thing by self-quarantining to prevent the spread.

Thankfully, the senator reports he does not have any symptoms of the virus.

“I was alerted today by the Tri-County Health Department that a Coloradan who visited my Washington office for a constituent meeting has tested positive for coronavirus. While I am not showing any symptoms at this time, I have made the decision to self-quarantine out of an abundance of caution with an effective date of March 11th at the recommendation of the Tri-County Health Department. The health and safety of Coloradans and Americans across the nation is my top priority, and I will continue working to make sure Congress provides the resources needed to help combat the spread of COVID-19,” said Senator Gardner.

Thank you Sen. Gardner for setting such a responsible example and for protecting your staff and community.

Take note, CdeBaca.
