NBC6 Miami is reporting that Florida Senator Rick Scott announced Thursday that he is “self-quarantining” himself because he had come into contact with a Brazilian delegation member that has now tested positive for the Covid 19 virus.

Senator Scott is quoted as saying, “My office was alerted today by the Brazilian Embassy that a member of President Bolsonaro’s delegation tested positive for Coronavirus. I have been told that my risk is low, and I don’t need to take a test or quarantine. However, the health and safety of the American people is my focus and I have made the decision to self-quarantine in an abundance of caution. “

Ironically, Senator Scott had planned today, to announce new legislation to expand access to coronavirus testing in a press conference that has now been cancelled.
