Please read Potential Coronavirus Exposure Information
Congressman Davis held Open Office Hours, Tuesday, August 4, 2020, at the Tolono Police Station. This is the same office the Village of Tolono conducts their Board Meetings. Please take the necessary precautions if you came in direct contact with the Congressman or attended the Board Meeting held the evening of August 4. The Congressman’s response to testing positive for the virus is below.
Congressman Rodney Davis – This morning, I tested positive for COVID-19. Since the beginning of this pandemic, I have taken my temperature twice daily because serving in Congress means I interact with many people, and it’s my duty to protect the health of those I serve. This morning, my temperature clocked in at 99 degrees Fahrenheit, which is higher than normal for me.
Because of the high temperature, my wife and I received a test this morning. While my test came back positive, my wife’s test came back negative. My staff who I’ve worked with in-person this week have received negative tests as well. Other than a higher-than-normal temperature, I am showing no symptoms at this time and feel fine.
Having consulted with the Office of the Attending Physician (OAP) of Congress and local county health officials, our office is contacting constituents I have met with in-person within the previous 48 hours, per CDC guidelines.
My staff and I take COVID-19 very seriously. My wife is a nurse and a cancer survivor, which puts her in an at-risk category like so many Americans. My office and I have always followed and will continue to follow CDC guidelines, use social distancing, and wear masks or face coverings when social distancing cannot be maintained.
I will postpone public events our office has planned for the coming days until I receive a negative test. I will continue to serve my constituents virtually from home while I quarantine. Our district offices throughout central and southwestern Illinois remain open for constituents as well.
During these challenging times, protecting the public health is my highest priority. If you’re out in public, use social distancing, and when you can’t social distance, please wear a mask. All of us must do our part. That’s what it will take to get through this pandemic.
On Tuesday, August 4th, 2020, Congressman Davis will be at the Tolono Police Department from 1:00PM-3:00PM conducting Open Office Hours. If you need assistance with a federal agency, have policy issues you wish to discuss or just want to say hello, please stop by to meet with him. COVID-19 safety precautions will be in place. Staff and visitors will be required to wear a face mask. Hand sanitizer will be provided. To make an appointment call Congressman Davis’s office at 217-403-4690.
