State Rep. Abdullah Hammoud (D-Dearborn) announced Friday that he tested positive for COVID-19.
“Thankfully, I am feeling well and recovering at home. In the interim, my team and I will continue to work remotely,” Hammoud said in a statement.
Hammoud is the latest in a list of Michigan lawmakers who have disclosed they tested for positive, including state Reps. John Chirkun (D-Roseville), Kyra Bolden (D-Southfield), Scott VanSingel (R-Grant), Ann Bollin (R-Brighton Twp.), Beau LaFave (R-Iron Mountain), Tyrone Carter (D-Detroit) and Karen Whitsett (D-Detroit) and Sens. Kim LaSata (R-Bainbridge Twp.), Tom Barrett (R-Potterville) and Jim Ananich (D-Flint).
State Rep. Kara Hope (D-Holt) said in the spring that she believed she had COVID-19, although her test was lost. Rep. Isaac Robinson (D-Detroit), who died in March, presumably died due to health complications caused by COVID-19.
The Legislature has been out since Dec. 23, but will reconvene Wednesday.
Hammoud said he “will return to session once it is safe for me to do so.
