Description Sen. Ted Cruz on Sunday said he would self-quarantine after interacting with a person at a conservative conference who has tested positive for the coronavirus — making the Texas Republican the first known member of Congress to have possibly come into contact with the rapidly spreading virus.

Cruz, an outspoken Republican who ran for president in 2016, said the interaction happened at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland. He said in a statement that he shook hands with the individual and had a brief conversation.

"I am not experiencing any symptoms and I feel fine and healthy," Cruz said, explaining that the interaction lasted "less than a minute" and medical professionals he's consulted have told him the "odds of transmission from the other individual to me were extremely low.
