Sen. Rand Paul has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a press release from his office.

Paul "is feeling fine and is in quarantine."

According to the press release:

"Paul is asymptomatic and was tested out of an abundance of caution due to his extensive travel and events. He was not aware of any direct contact with any infected person.

He expects to be back in the Senate after his quarantine period ends and will continue to work for the people of Kentucky at this difficult time. Ten days ago, our D.C. office began operating remotely, hence virtually no staff has had contact with Senator Paul."
