HALEYVILLE - U.S. Congressman Robert Aderholt (R-Haleyville) announced Friday morning, Dec. 4, that he has tested positive for COVID-19 but, thankfully, is asymptomatic.
“As I had previously mentioned last week, my wife, Caroline, found out she was positive for COVID-19. (She has since recovered.) So, I have been isolating again. As part of the isolation process, I received a COVID test Thursday to see if I could end my quarantine under the new, shortened CDC guidelines, and resume voting on the House floor. I fully expected to receive a negative test because I have felt, and continue to feel fine, and have no symptoms. Unfortunately, I received word Friday morning that my test came back positive. After speaking with the attending physician for Congress, I will continue to isolate," Aderholt said in a statement.
