Tested Positive for Virus
State Rep. Jason Lowe (Dem., Oklahoma City) said he is “recovering and doing well” after he tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this week.
The state legislator said he began experiencing several days ago fever, chills, body aches and exhaustion.
He said he immediately contacted his primary care physician and self-quarantined himself at his home.
The state representative said he is continuing to self-isolate himself even though he currently is experiencing no symptoms of the COVID-19 disease so that he does not pose a risk to others.
“I am extremely grateful for the care that I received and I have a new appreciation for what thousands of Oklahoma health care workers are dealing with right now,” State Rep. Lowe said.
“I encourage us all to support those in our communities who put their lives on the line for the citizens of the great state of Oklahoma.
“Let’s lift these selfless professionals up in prayer and support during this crisis.”
State Rep. Lowe is committed to working with state government partners to address “this unique health care issue.”
He said he plans to continue to work remotely from his home and encourages the residents of State House District 97 to contact his office with any issues they may have.
The Oklahoma City legislator said he encourages the public to heed government warnings relating to social distancing in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
“It is of vital importance that we all stay home to help flatten the curve swiftly and effectively,” State Rep. Lowe said.
“I am encouraged that we will get through this together,” he continued.
“Thank you for your continued support and prayers.”
