Georgia runoff candidate tests positive for COVID

Georgia Senator Kelly Loeffler is in self-isolation after testing positive for the coronavirus. She is one of the two Republican candidates competing in the runoff elections taking place on January 5 which could hand the Democratic Party a majority in the United States Senate.

Loeffler took a rapid test on Friday, which came back negative and cleared her to attend campaign events on the same day. However, a more accurate PCR test was performed after the events and returned a positive result. "She was retested Saturday morning after conferring with medical officials and those results came back inconclusive on Saturday evening," a spokesperson stated. "She has no symptoms and she will continue to follow CDC guidelines by quarantining until retesting is conclusive and an update will be provided at that time."
