Harris issues statement on positive COVID-19 test


PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 18 – State Rep. Jordan Harris, D-Phila., House Democratic Whip, issued the following statement after receiving a positive COVID-19 test result:


“Last week, I was made aware that I was in close contact with a member of my community who began experiencing COVID-19 symptoms after our contact. Out of an abundance of caution, I immediately went into self-isolation and scheduled my own COVID-19 test. Subsequently, my exposure has resulted in a positive test result.


“Working in collaboration with our Human Resources Department in Harrisburg, I can say that there has been no potential exposure to the Capitol complex. Thus far, I feel blessed and fortunate to be in good health and good spirits.


“I will be following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, the Pennsylvania Department of Health and my primary care physician. As the virus spreads throughout our communities at an alarming rate, I encourage everyone to follow the mitigation efforts put forth by Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine and continue being diligent with mask wearing, washing our hands and practicing social distancing. As the House returns to session, I will be working remotely from home.


“I please ask you to keep me, and all those fighting this virus, in your prayers.”
