Wisconsin Democrat attends House vote just six days after announcing positive Covid-19 test

WASHINGTON DC (77WABC) – Just six days after testing positive for Covid-19, U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore, a Milwaukee Democrat, traveled to Washington, D.C., to attend Sunday’s vote on the speaker of the house.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi narrowly won reelection with 216 votes after a tight election on Sunday.

Moore’s spokesperson did not respond directly when asked if Moore had tested negative for COVID-19 before traveling.  Moore wrote in a tweet that her quarantine period was over and she was cleared to travel.

The congresswoman announced on Twitter on Dec. 28 that she had tested positive for COVID-19 while encouraging others to take safety measures to prevent its spread.

Moore did not say when she tested positive for the virus.  According to the CDC, a person should quarantine for at least ten days after a positive test and you can stop self isolating after a negative test result at the conclusion of those ten days.

After stopping quarantine, you should:

  • Watch for symptoms until 14 days after exposure.
  • If you have symptoms, immediately self-isolate and contact your local public health authority or healthcare provider.
  • Wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet from others, wash your hands, avoid crowds, and take other steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

CDC continues to endorse quarantine for 14 days and recognizes that any quarantine shorter than 14 days balances reduced burden against a small possibility of spreading the virus.
