Perdue to quarantine days before Georgia runoff after close Covid contact

Sen. David Perdue is quarantining after an unidentified individual with whom the Republican had been “in close contact” tested positive for the coronavirus, stepping back from the Georgia campaign trail just days before a runoff election for his seat.

In an unsigned statement released to reporters on Thursday afternoon, Perdue’s campaign said the first-term senator had been notified earlier in the day “that he came into close contact with someone on the campaign who tested positive for Covid-19.”

The statement continued that both Perdue and his wife, Bonnie, tested negative for the virus on Thursday, “but following his doctor’s recommendations and in accordance with [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidelines, they will quarantine.”
