Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement regarding reports that he was exposed to COVID-19:

"Saturday night, I got a call from the House physician advising that I had possibly been exposed to the COVID-19 virus at CPAC on February 27th, and that a top CDC physician in Atlanta would call me to discuss what should be done going forward. After CDC physician called me Sunday evening, and we discussed all the specific circumstances of which he was aware along with my circumstances, including that I was and am asymptomatic, he said that all things considered, I was cleared to return to Washington. He said he would return if he were me and advised that my staff and I should just be careful to observe proper hygiene protocols.  I took the advice of the expert and returned to work. No one is panicking and we are observing the recommended precautions."
