Ron Johnson, WI Senator.
HOW CAN ANY SENATOR STILL BE THIS UNINFORMED? No, not just his views on the mask mandate, but NOT UNDERSTANDING QUARANTINE?!?
He knew he had been exposed. He had taken a test. Then, before he got the results, he attended a Republican Party Oktoberfest Dinner.
Asked whether he was told to self-quarantine after getting tested, Johnson said there was “no reason to do so.”
“I’m not sick,” he said. “I have no symptoms. I certainly didn’t anticipate testing positive, so there was no reason to quarantine.”
You isolate when you're sick. You quarantine when you've been exposed because almost half the spread comes from asymptomatic and presymptomatic people.
We have known this since JANUARY, they figured it out in Wuhan. He "didn't anticipate testing positive" but he was tested because he'd been exposed.
I...ugh. No words.
