Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.) has tested positive for COVID-19 after being in Washington, D.C., this week, becoming the latest member of Congress to be diagnosed with the disease.

“While I cannot blame anyone directly for this, this week has shown that there are some Members of Congress who fail to take this crisis seriously,” Grijalva said in a statement to The Arizona Republic.

The article goes on to state the following:

Grijalva, who is chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, had been self-quarantining at his Washington, D.C., residence this week after chairing a hearing attended by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), who tested positive on Wednesday.

Grijalva released a written statement on Saturday. He said:

“While I cannot blame anyone directly for this, this week has shown that there are some Members of Congress who fail to take this crisis seriously.

“Numerous Republican members routinely strut around the Capitol without a mask to selfishly make a political statement at the expense of their colleagues, staff, and their families.

“I’m pleased that (House Speaker Nancy Pelosi) has mandated the use of masks at the Capitol to keep members and staff safe from those looking to score quick political points. Stopping the spread of a deadly virus should not be a partisan issue.

“I urge all of us to recognize the severity of this virus and follow the CDC guidance to keep our family, friends, and loved ones safe. We can all play a part in stopping the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.”

“I currently have no symptoms, feel fine, and hope to make a quick and speedy recovery.”

  1. Does anyone else wonder how many people who have ever had a flu vaccine especially in recent years is testing positive for this latest strain of corona virus? Has anyone asked their own physicians if there could be some correlation? And isn’t our yearly latest new strain of flu a “corona” virus? Just curious. Not claiming to be expert. That is why we should ask questions… hopefully for factual clarifications not hype.

    • This makes sense to me. I never get the flu shot and I never will. If masks do protect you, why is it people wearing masks are getting it. Maybe you’re right, wonder if he got the flu shot. My daughter has to get the flu shot, she’s a surgical tech, she got it. Your comment dies make me wonder.

  2. What they fail to recognize is that those republicans are not showing symptoms and aren’t coming down with it. Wouldn’t they think that the Republicans are just at much risk as they are? So why are few of them coming down with it? Could it be that his state is a hotbed for the virus now? Oh, of course not! Just another way to put the blame on the other side.

  3. Does he wear a mask everywhere he goes??? If he does, he shouldn’t have gotten it right??? Lol. Typical dem, playing the blame game. We need herd immunity anyway.

  4. What an idiot to place the blame on the Republicans. He must be a Pelosi clone. Obviously already sick in the head.

  5. Question?
    Does he every leave his office? Does he go home? Does he have family members? Why point fingers at Republicans not wearing mask. Could have gotten anywhere.
