“Senator Loeffler followed the CDC’s direction in advising those with whom she had direct contact while awaiting the results of further testing,” Lawson added. “She is symptom-free and will continue to follow CDC guidelines by quarantining herself until the retest is successful and an update is provided at that time.”
The events of Loeffler’s campaign have come under scrutiny for not adhering to CDC guidelines. Specifically, the senator has hosted indoor events, largely without a mask, including one last week with Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).
Loeffler, who was appointed to her seat earlier this year after the retirement of Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), Joins seven other senators who contracted the virus this year and two others who tested positive for antibodies against the coronavirus. This week again, the senses. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Rick Scott (R-Fla.) Tested positive.
Georgia’s two final rounds are expected to determine which party controls the Senate in January, so Loeffler and his counterpart, Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) Have kept busy schedules crisscrossing Peach State. Perdue takes on Democrat Jon Ossoff as he seeks a second six-year term in the Senate.
