WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Representative Jahana Hayes tested positive for coronavirus on Sunday and has decided to quarantine for 14 days, she said on Twitter, becoming the latest member of Congress to test positive for COVID-19.

“I have taken every possible precaution and still contracted coronavirus,” Hayes, a Connecticut Democrat, said in a tweet. Hayes said she was asymptomatic except for breathing issues, which were being monitored.

At least 17 other members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate – nine Republicans and seven Democrats – have tested positive or are presumed to have had COVID-19.
