ATLANTA, GA — (12-31-20) — Just days before his runoff election against Democrat Jon Ossoff, Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) has quarantined after exposure to the coronavirus.

In a statement (via CNN), Sen. Perdue’s campaign announced the senator and his wife tested negative for the virus however, their proximity to someone who tested positive necessitates a period of isolation.

“This morning, Senator Perdue was notified that he came into close contact with someone on the campaign who tested positive for COVID-19,” the statement said. “Both Senator Perdue and his wife tested negative today, but following his doctor’s recommendations and in accordance with CDC guidelines, they will quarantine. The Senator and his wife have been tested regularly throughout the campaign, and the team will continue to follow CDC guidelines. Further information will be provided when available.”

Perdue is coming off of the campaign trail at a crucial time as polls show Perdue and Ossoff in a dead heat, as well as Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and Reverend Raphael Warnock(D-GA). If Ossoff and Warnock both win, Democrats will take control of the U.S. Senate.
