Florida Sen. Scott to self-quarantine

March 12, 2020 - Sen. Rick Scott, R-Florida, will self-quarantine after a meeting in Miami Monday with the president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro. Scott said his office was alerted Thursday by the Brazilian Embassy that a member of Bolsonaro’s delegation tested positive for coronavirus. "While I do not believe I interacted with the infected person, that individual was in the same room as me," Scott wrote in a news release. "After consulting with the Senate’s attending physician and my personal doctor, I have been told that my risk is low, and I don’t need to take a test or quarantine. However, the health and safety of the American people is my focus and I have made the decision to self-quarantine in an abundance of caution. I am feeling healthy and not experiencing any symptoms at this time." Scott cancelled a news conference at which he planned to announce legislation to expand access to coronavirus testing. He said he will continue working on that plan.
