Mississippi House Speaker Philip Gunn Tests Positive for Covid-19

Some members of the Mississippi State Legislature test positive for covid-19.

One of those is Mississippi house speaker Phillip Gunn. Gunn addressed the situation in a Facebook post saying he was informed Sunday morning he had tested positive. He went on to say that he was in close proximity last week to another house member who tested positive as well.

This after the house spent several days voting last week to remove the Mississippi state flag.

Gunn says he's grateful he feels fine and does not have many symptoms. Other house members have been warned to quarantine for 14 days and get tested.
