Renee Unterman, the leading conservative candidate in the 7th Congressional District race, today released the following statement following notification that a member of the Georgia State Senate had tested positive for COVID-19:
“I was very concerned to hear one of my fellow legislators had tested positive for COVID-19, though I was not surprised, as epidemiologists have warned us of its infectious nature. I wish the affected legislator a full and speedy recovery, and I’ve called to say I’m here to support however possible. As our last date of contact was March 16, I will self-quarantine until March 30 out of an abundance of caution. This colleague and the many other Georgians affected by the COVID-19 pandemic are in my prayers. In these uncertain times, I appreciate the leadership of President Donald Trump and Gov. Brian Kemp, and I’m confident that as resilient Americans, we can unite to stop the spread of COVID-19.”
Unterman for Congress had already suspended all in-person events and door-to-door canvassing indefinitely at the advice of President Trump and Governor Kemp last week.
