Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was hospitalized on Saturday after announcing that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.
“In consultation with my doctors, I checked myself into Morristown Medical Center this afternoon,” Christie said on Twitter.
Christie said he’s feeling “good and only have mild symptoms,” but he felt this was an “important precautionary measure” because of his history of asthma.
“I am thankful for our hardworking medical professionals and look forward to coming home soon,” he said.
The former governor announced on Twitter that he tested positive for COVID-19, almost a week after attending an event at the White House where a number of attendees – including President Trump – later tested positive for the virus.
