OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – An Oklahoma state official is self-quarantining after traveling during spring break.
Oklahoma Lt. Governor Matt Pinnell says he traveled to visit a relative in Florida during spring break.
“Like many, I traveled with my family on spring break when the COVID-19 situation escalated. We drove to a relative’s home in Florida on March 14th We returned home as the situation unfolded. Out of an abundance of caution, I’ve been following Health Department recommendations to self-quarantine for 14 days. I have not been in contact with anyone known to have COVID-19, and am not exhibiting any symptoms. As part of the Governors Solution Task Force, I’ve been working remotely and look forward to leading the recovery effort,” Pinnell posted on Twitter.
