Rep. Katie Porter said a fever and “cold-like” symptoms are leading her to self-quarantine while waiting for coronavirus test results to come in.

In a series of tweets Wednesday, the first-term California Democrat said that she became ill last week and over the weekend developed a 100.4-degree fever.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I carefully followed all instructions to visit my doctor and received a test for COVID-19. I am waiting for results,” tweeted Porter, 46, who is in her first term representing a historically Republican Orange County district.

Porter said on Twitter, “Last week, I developed cold-like symptoms followed by fatigue. I stayed home and spoke to my healthcare provider. Over the weekend, I had a fever over 100.4 degrees. As instructed, I continued to isolate in my bedroom and phoned my provider. I carefully followed all instructions to visit my doctor and received a test for COVID-19. I am waiting for results.”

“I will remain in self-quarantine until I have the test results back and until directed by my doctor that it is safe for me to leave my home. I am participating by telephone in Congressional business and listening to the concerns of our Orange County community,” she added.
