Sacramento - Senator Scott Wilk, representing the 21st Senate District, issued the following statement in response to a California Senator testing positive for COVID-19:
“Earlier this week one of my Senate colleagues tested positive for COVID-19. Like many other Senators, I interacted with this legislator. In an abundance of caution, I will be self-quarantining in Sacramento, monitoring my health, testing for the virus tomorrow and again next week. I feel that my risk level is low as I follow the recommended protocols, but the health and safety of my family, colleagues and the many vulnerable Californians who could potentially contract the virus from an asymptomatic transmission remain my priority.
“Wednesday’s Senate Session was cancelled but beginning tomorrow quarantined legislators will be allowed to vote remotely from their Sacramento residences.”
