U.S. Rep. Tim Walberg (R-Tipton) announced Monday that he tested positive for COVID-19.
“My symptoms are mild, and my spirits remain high,” Walberg said.
U.S. Rep. Huizenga (R-Zeeland) was the first of the Michigan delegation to contract the virus when he tested positive last month.
In a statement Monday, Walberg said he got his test results Sunday and he hasn’t attended a public event in more than a week. He said his office is in the process of contact-tracing.
The list of state lawmakers who have tested positive for COVID-19 has grown in the last few weeks as cases have exploded in Michigan.
On Friday, State Sen. Kim LaSata (R-Bainbridge Twp.) announced she tested positive for the virus. Reps. Scott VanSingel (R-Grant) and Ann Bollin (R-Brighton) also recently tested positive for COVID-19.
Rep. Beau LaFave (R-Iron Mountain), Rep. Tyrone Carter (D-Detroit) Rep. Karen Whitsett (D-Detroit), Sen. Tom Barrett (R-Charlotte) and Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D-Flint) also have tested positive.
State Rep. Kara Hope (D-Holt) said she believed she had COVID-19, although her test was lost. Rep. Isaac Robinson (D-Detroit) died on March 29 and the virus is believed to have played a factor.
