Louie Gohmert tests positive for COVID-19 after refusing to wear a mask at Barr hearing

Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 after he refused to wear a mask at a hearing on Capitol Hill on Tuesday.

Gohmert, who was scheduled to travel to Texas with the President Donald Trump on Wednesday, was said to have tested positive during a pre-screening for the trip, according to Politico.

On Tuesday, Gohmert was seen without a mask at a House Judiciary Committee hearing where Attorney General Bill Barr was testifying.

Gohmert is on record saying that he does not wear a mask because he is regularly tested for the virus.
