This is bad. Mike Lee is going into self-quarantine after Rand Paul tested positive for coronavirus.

It might have to do with this:
Apparently DOCTOR Rand Paul didn’t quite get the (obvious) message that everyone must self-quarantine while awaiting results of a #COVID19 test. Completely defeats the point of testing if that’s not done. https://t.co/KdCz8MU3b8

BUT, Rand Paul is calling her out for the deceptive implication that he went to the gym after being diagnosed.
We want to be clear, Senator Paul left the Senate IMMEDIATELY upon learning of his diagnosis. He had zero contact with anyone & went into quarantine. Insinuations such as those below that he went to the gym after learning of his results are just completely false & irresponsible! https://t.co/yqfxydsXBG

It would definitely have been irresponsible to have contact with others after testing positive, and a ton of people are dunking on Paul based on the false reporting.
BUT, aside from that, we know that it can passed on even before someone is showing symptoms. So. This is still a problem.
This dude basically works in the country’s biggest nursing home for millionaires that happen to make all the most important decisions for the greatest country in the world. I guess it was only a matter of time.
