United States Congressman, Mario Diaz-Balart, who represents Miami Springs and the 25th Congressional District within the United States House of Representatives, tested positive today for the Chinese Coronavirus (aka COVID-19).

A press release that was posted to social media stated:  “In an abundance of caution, after votes on Friday, March 13th, Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart decided to self-quarantine in Washington, D.C., and not return to South Florida because of his wife Tia’s pre-existing conditions that put her at exceptionally high risk.  On Saturday evening, Congressman Diaz-Balart developed symptons, including a fever and a headache.  Just a short while ago, he was notified that he has tested positive for COVID-19.  While in quarantine Diaz-Balart has been working from his apartment in Washington, DC.”

Congressman Diaz-Balart also posted: “I’m feeling much better. However, it’s important that everyone take this seriously and follow @CDCgov guidelines in order to avoid getting sick & mitigate the spread of this virus. We must continue to work together to emerge stronger as a country during these trying times.”
