2nd legislator reports having COVID since session started
PHOENIX (AP) — A second Arizona state representative reports having COVID-19 since the Legislature’s annual session began Monday.
Tucson Democrat Daniel Hernandez Jr. said Thursday on Twitter that he had tested positive for COVID-19.
“I’m thankful to be vaccinated and boosted, and am currently asymptomatic and quarantining at home,” Hernandez said.
Earlier Thursday, Rep. Marcelino Quiñonez, D-Phoenix, announced he was infected with COVID-19. He said he was vaccinated and had no symptoms.
Hernandez has served in the Arizona House since 2017 and last year announced his candidacy for Congress.
