MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson said Thursday he’s been placed in quarantine after being exposed to someone who tested positive for the coronavirus.
Johnson said he has no symptoms and tested negative for the virus, but canceled plans to travel with President Donald Trump and attend Trump’s campaign event Thursday evening in Mosinee.
Johnson said he was tested late Wednesday for the virus because of his plans to be near the president.
In March, Johnson consulted with doctors about the need to self-quarantine after reportedly meeting with a member of the Spanish parliament who has tested positive for coronavirus.
Trump’s airport stop in Mosinee was to be his fifth to the key battleground state this year.
