FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky lawmaker who heads a key education committee says he tested positive for the coronavirus. In a Twitter post Monday night, Republican state Sen. Max Wise says he began experiencing “very mild symptoms” last Thursday and was tested the next day. He says both tests came back positive. Since then, he says he has “felt fine” and is no longer experiencing any symptoms. Wise says he’ll self-quarantine until he’s released by his local health department. The Campbellsville lawmaker is chairman of the Senate Education Committee. During his quarantine, he’ll handle communications online and participate in committee meetings remotely.
