North Dakota House Rep Armstrong Tests Positive for COVID-19

(Fargo, ND) -- North Dakota's lone congressman has tested positive for COVID-19.

U.S. Congressman Kelly Armstrong announced via social media Sunday that he was experiencing mild symptoms, which led to him taking a test and it turning out positive.

"I have been fully vaccinated since January, and I am taking all precautions and recovering at home in North Dakota. I have been advised by my doctor to quarantine for ten days," said Armstrong, who also announced that since he will not be present for votes on key infrastructure in Washington D.C. this week, he will instead vote by proxy.

"Thank you to my family, staff, healthcare providers, and friends in Congress who are helping me during this time," added Armstrong.

Congress is set to vote this upcoming week on multiple bills involving infrastructure and funding for a possible government shutdown.
