Georgia Republican senate candidate David Perdue to quarantine just 5 days to election

Republican Senator David Perdue of Georgia announced on Thursday he will quarantine after being exposed to someone infected with COVID-19.

The quarantine is taking him off the campaign trail only five days to an election that will determine control of the Senate.

In a statement, Perdue’s team said the Senator was informed on Thursday that he had been in close contact with someone on the campaign who had tested positive for the coronavirus.


Perdue and his wife have tested negative but will quarantine based on on guiltiness by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and their doctor’s recommendation.

“The Senator and his wife have been tested regularly throughout the campaign, and the team will continue to follow CDC guidelines,” the statement read.
