Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, who refused to wear a mask, tests positive for COVID-19.
Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas, who has dismissed calls to wear a mask while working on Capitol Hill, tested positive for the coronavirus.
The congressman posted a video to Twitter Wednesday afternoon confirming he had tested positive twice at the White House — once with a quick test and again with a swab test.
“The reports of my demise are a great deal premature,” he said in the video. “I’m asymptomatic. I don’t have any of the symptoms that are listed as part of COVID-19, but apparently I have the Wuhan virus.”
