Oklahoma Senator Paul Rosino Tests Positive For COVID-19


Oklahoma Senator Paul Rosino is one of 109 Oklahomans to test positive for COVID-19.

Rosino was not present at the Senate last week, so he was not among the Senators or staff who were screening on March 17 after a Senate staffer tested positive for COVID-19. Rosino's last appearance at the state capitol was March 12.

In a statement, the Oklahoma City Republican said he began feeling unwell on March 15, at which time he isolated himself and contacted a doctor who later confirmed the positive test.

"I am doing well and feel much better," Rosino said in a statement. "I'm glad I followed the health professionals’ advice to the tee. That’s what we all need to do now: stay home if we feel sick, isolate and seek care from a doctor. Doing that, we can all be well, let the health care heroes focus on the critically ill, and do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19."

Rosino says he plans to continue working from home for the time being.
