Senator Amy Klobuchar has announced that her husband, John, has tested positive for COVID-19.

Klobuchar says that her husband started feeling sick while in Washington, D.C. He presented with symptoms of the common cold and didn't seek medical treatment until he started coughing up blood. He is currently in a hospital in Virginia with COVID-19 and pneumonia. 

The Minnesota Senator says that she is out of the 14 day period from getting sick and has been advised that she does not need to be tested. 

She ends her statement saying that she loves her husband very much and not being there by his side is one of the hardest parts of the disease, but she will continue to fight to get help for the people of Minnesota.
