Aderholt tests positive for COVID-19

Congressman Robert Aderholt

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.
