Senator Kelly Loeffler was quarantined after taking a positive test for COVID-19 and then taking another test with inconclusive results, a campaign spokeswoman said Saturday.
Loeffler (R-Ga.) Took it two quick tests of COVID-19 on Friday morning and both have returned negative. She was released to attend events that day, spokesman Stephen Lawson said in a statement.
Later that day, the senator was informed that the results of a PCR test turned positive. He retried Saturday and received inconclusive results, Lawson added.
“Senator Loeffler followed the CDC’s guidelines by warning those with whom she had maintained direct contact while she awaited further test results,” she said.
Lawson said Loeffler has no symptoms and is self-isolating until she has conclusive results.
It is unclear how his diagnosis will influence his campaign.
She is running against Democrat Raphael Warnock in a running race – one of two races that could determine which party will take control of the Senate in January.
