Georgia Senator Kelly Loeffler has gone into quarantine after receiving conflicting COVID-19 test results – including one that was positive.
Loeffler’s campaign said she took two tests on Friday after coming into contact with an infected individual. The rapid test came back negative before a PCR test showed she was positive.
The Republican was then retested on Saturday and the results were inconclusive, prompting her to isolate out of caution.
‘Senator Loeffler followed CDC guidelines by notifying those with whom she had sustained direct contact while she awaits further test results,’ her office said Saturday night.
‘She has no symptoms and she will continue to follow CDC guidelines by quarantining until retesting is conclusive and an update will be provided at that time.’
It’s unclear whether Loeffler tested positive before or after she appeared at a campaign rally with Vice President Mike Pence on Friday.
This is a developing story.
