Senator Rick Scott tests positive for COVID-19

Jacksonville, Fl — Florida Senator Rick Scott has tested positive for the coronavirus. Scott says he came into contact with someone after returning to Florida last Friday, who ended up testing positive. He has been in quarantine at his home in Naples ever since.

Scott says he took multiple negative tests earlier in the week, but a PCR test he took on Tuesday came back positive this morning.

“I am feeling good and experiencing very mild symptoms. I will be working from home in Naples until it is safe for me to return to Washington, D.C. I want to remind everyone to be careful and do the right things to protect yourselves and others. Wear a mask. Social distance. Quarantine if you come in contact with someone positive like I did. As we approach Thanksgiving, we know this holiday will be different this year. But, listen to public health officials and follow their guidance. We will beat this together, but we all have to be responsible. I want to thank all the incredible health care workers who are working around the clock to care for patients and I pray that by next Thanksgiving, COVID-19 will be a thing of the past.”
