Texas Sen. Ted Cruz announced Sunday evening that he will undergo self-quarantine this week at his Texas home because he interacted with a person at the Conservative Political Action Conference who has tested positive for coronavirus.

Cruz said on Twitter that he had only a brief conversation and shook hands with the person. The interaction took place 10 days ago, he said.

Maryland officials warned Saturday that the person who attended the recent conference in the suburb of Oxon Hill had tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.

When a Senator becomes afraid of a virus, we know that NOW something will be done about it.
