Oklahoma State Rep. Jason Lowe has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) earlier this week, according to a press release.
Officials say he is is recovering and doing well after experiencing symptoms several days ago. His symptoms were described as including a fever, chills, body aches and exhaustion, officials say.
“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,” 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.”
Immediately, Lowe quarantined at home after contacting his primary physician, officials say. Lowe is currently not showing any symptoms but will continue to self-isolate as a means to not pose a risk to others.
“It is of vital importance that we all stay home to help flatten the curve swiftly and effectively,” Lowe said. “I am encouraged that we will get through this together. Thank you for your continued support and prayers.”
